Before coming to Europe for a press trip and one off low-key acoustic set in London last month, Ganglians marked their return to the music scene by recently giving away new track ‘Jungle’ for free, which NME said sounded like “if Archie Bronson Outfit, Band of Horses & Fleet Foxes had some kind of spaced-out love-in, then the resultant children were fed a diet of ‘60s psychadelia & recorded their single in an echo-filled cave”.
 
Still Living’rings in at just under an hour, staying true to the psychedelic roots established on their self-titled debut and immediate follow-up Monster Head Room (Woodsist/Souterrain Transmissions). They step it up a notch both stylistically and sonically, enlisting the help of producer Robby Moncrieff (who also played a crucial role in the shaping of The Dirty Projectors Bitte Orca) and taking the experimental blueprints of this albumʼs predecessor and updating (and expanding) their designs. So, moods move from quiet introspection to boisterous merriment, chords stimulating the synapses while the toes canʼt keep from twitching.

Says Grubbs of the end results: “This is outsider music, but with a pop sensibility that brings everyone in.”

“Itʼs pretty honest music. Everyone feels a great range of emotions, like awkwardness and self-doubt, and not wanting to have to be cool to be cool. And thatʼs what these songs are like.”
