Words: Jane Davies
Rising stars Stillia have just shared their debut single “Let Me In” - out officially on March 24 via Beautiful Noise - with a cracker of a video, directed by and starring Johnny Vegas.
Filmed on location in the band’s hometown of St Helens, the video features local comedian Johnny as a besotted fan whose devotions take a sinister turn after attending a gig at the local Zoo venue.
The indie four-piece comprising Jack Bennett on vocals and guitar, brother Matty on drums, Connor Moran on lead guitar and bassist Johnny Waring, have racked up over 50 live appearances in the past 12 months and have earnt substantial radio airplay in the process from BBC Introducing Manchester, Radio X and BBC Radio 6Music.
The single is be the first of four scheduled releases for 2017, all from the band's debut full-length, “From Ground To Light”, produced by Ady Hall and Lee McCarthy (Viola Beach) at Sugar House and to be released later this year.
