CONGRATULATIONS to Big Stir Records on for the upcoming release of this Friday’s Golden Anniversary Digital Single, The Stillsouls’ “Does My Love For You Come From Shakespeare Too?” b/w “Old Guitars Are Ghosts on the Sunset Strip.” You can pre-order it now on the Digital Singles Page, and download it on November 1st. Follow The Stillsouls on Twitter.
“Does My Love For You Come From Shakespeare Too,” according to the Big Stir Website, is “a song inspired by the personal journey of a great friend of The Stillsouls who walked away from everything in search of a way to defeat his sorrows, and remains missing today.” The song features a lush, full Jeff Lynne / Elo feel, with smooth, elegant pacing and stately guitar solos.
“Old Guitars Are Ghosts on the Sunset Strip” changes gears into a beautiful stomp that brings back memories of Motörhead’s “Orgasmatron” and Billy Squier’s “Everybody Wants You,” with a little vintage Bowie / Ronson crooning to ice the cake. To call it “infectious” is an understatement…it’s bold, fuzzy, cocky, and effortlessly cool.
The Stillsouls are Cody Melville, John Melville, Joel B Cannon, Jesse Bryson, and Steve Mostyn.
