57 North Presents: Stasis

This week on shmuFM we're featuring local garage-rock duo Stasis

This week, our featured artist is Stasis! You can hear them live on 57° North Presents on Monday the 5th of December from 8-10pm. You'll hear tracks from their new EP, a live session and plenty more, only on shmuFM.

Stasis is a two-piece band made up of guitarist and singer songwriter Nicky Elphinstone and drummer Connor Logue. The band was formed in October 2015 and has continued to stay under the radar perfecting their sound.

Both members came from a different musical background. Connor found his muse in hard hitting metal rhythms, which flowed perfectly with the blues/garage rock background that Nicky brought to the table. The result is a very original and intense sound. As the band have taken to saying: "there's something so metal about garage rock". They credit a wide range of influences and inspirations such as Jimi Hendrix, Slipknot, Jack White and Motorhead etc.

They plan to have an EP out later this year titled "I Fell From Space", and their main aim is to have regular gigs in different locations.

You can tune in to 57° North Presents on 99.8fm or online right here. You can also request Stasis's tracks on any of our live shows, by getting in touch with the studio

As always, don't worry if you miss the show - you can listen again until the 3rd of October, or tune in the old-fashioned way from midnight to 2am on Friday night for the repeat.
