THE STANDSTILLS / Press

“” The Standstills are one of the hardest working, up and comers I’ve seen in a long time. They have the ability to generate hype and deliver with their live shows. I love seeing two piece bands that rock this hard!!””

““When I saw The Standstills for the first time, I knew instantly that I was witnessing a band on the verge of stardom. Every time I play them on 89X, I get calls and emails inquiring about them.””

““They blew us all away. We’re still talking about them! You know you’re onto something when a band leaves such a lasting impression you’re still talking about them a week later, radio station promotion or not. If word-of-mouth still counts, well, here’s an earful…It’s not too often that when a band plays that everything in the club seems to come to a stop but that was the case…They are cool, sexy & explosive in concert…and definitely worth checking out.””

““This album is huge, Crazy Horse-memorial huge. Orchestral huge, bigger than two anyway…This is the stuff rock ‘n’ roll is made of “”

““They’ve got these riff heavy hooks, but totally rock the same kind of gnarl and intensity some of the 90’s industrial and metal bands did.””

““She is the best female drummer at CMW and probably in all of Canada. That makes Renee the Neil Peart of Canadian female drumming.””

““Playing surprisingly full sounding music from just two instruments was impressive and given their time-slot which was early in the day, they played to the 50 or so people who had gathered around as if it were 50,000. “”

““The chemistry between the two also lends further cohesion to their sound, allowing them to create the illusion of a standard four-piece band on their own."”

““Together they make a sound that defies the convention of a two-piece, with a huge, full sound that doesn’t leave you asking where the bass is.””
