Founded on exploring the lump in the throat and the pit of the stomach, Winnipeg band Autumn Still grew out of the songwriting partnership between guitarist Trevor Graumann and bassist Bethany Swanson. Since the days of awkward youth roaming the river bank and conversing under train bridges through all hours of the night, the two have bonded over pop-rock music from Motown to New Wave.

Rounded out by the catchy synth sounds of Grant Partridge and the intuitive ear of drummer Roger Arseneault, the band has just unveiled their debut full-length album When It Was. In December 2015, When It Was debuted at #11 on the !earshot National Top 50. Flush with the nostalgia of their namesake season, When It Was comes off the heels of the self-titled EP that piqued ears across Canada.

Autumn Still on Global News

Press

Perfectly embodying the band name, Autumn Still is primed to be on your end of fall/early winter playlist. They're reminiscent of The Smiths and other iconic mood rock bands. Don't miss "Graduation" and "Lights Out Before The Dawn."Nicole Holoboff, CMJ
[Autumn Still] somehow manages to make each song sound special... The smooth vocals of Bethany Swanson, Trevor Graumann, and Grant Partridge blend well together perfectly. Andrea Hrynyk, BeatRoute
The debut EP from Autumn Still is a dreamy pop affair that evokes the empty, windswept spaces of the band's hometown Winnipeg. Made up of veterans from a number of local projects (Sit Down Tracy and Roger's Arsenal, among others), the band demonstrate a solid sense of self, especially for a debut. With airy vocals and a mellow, meandering pace to the music, the three songs here dance in a manner reminiscent of ice crystals and snow blowing in the dusky glow outside of living room windows.Sheldon Birnie, Exclaim!
