Autostasis is the brand new project of duo of Wyatt Parkins and Louis Sherman. Wyatt Parkins, as most shoegazers know, is the owner/operator of Saint Marie Records, the label behind some of the best contemporary shoegaze music being released. Louis Sherman is a member of Locust, an excellent electronic project that also involves visionary Mark Van Hoen.
"Desert Sand" is the duo's debut song. You may be expecting a traditional shoegaze sound, but Parkins and Sherman can't be pigeon-holed so easily. Autostasis creates music that is synth-based and cinematic, featuring sweeping soundscapes similar to Tangerine Dream combined with the moody electronica of S U R V I V E.
"Desert Sand" will be included on SMR's forthcoming compilation, Static Waves 5, which is set to drop on November 25. You can pre-order that here.
We are thrilled to premiere the video for this track, which can be viewed below. Autostasis is currently working on tracks for their forthcoming EP, so stay tuned.
