Still House Plants are a South London-based three-piece made up of Jess Hickie-Kallenbach, Finlay Clark, and David Kennedy.


From a minimalist approach of guitar, drums and vocals they create fractious and sharp music with a melting pop heart. Bridging elements of sampling, slow core, and repetition, the trio have developed a sound that constantly breaks apart and fuses together again.

‘If I don't make it, I love u’ is Still House Plants’ third LP, and the fullest embodiment of their sound to date. Where their previous release ‘Fast Edit’ formed with quick attachment and jump cuts, ‘If I don't make it’ is shaped by persistence - a commitment to the songs that makes the music solid, warmer and accepted; it holds feeling maximum and builds surety with its sound. The most generous SHP record to date, the music is wide open, and demands less.

Their second LP 'Fast Edit' was released collaboratively via London imprint Bison in partnership with New York based Blank Forms Editions. It was written aided by mobile phones, dictaphones, laptop recordings, conversations, and live shows, blending into a collage of fidelities and aural spaces. Things sit on top of each other, fall over one another, or click into place, with hearts on sleeves and spirits in motion.

“the most vital band working in Britain today” - The Guardian

"If Still House Plants truly evoke anything about [their] predecessors, it’s how firmly their vision feels of its time - not only in the fevered assembly and unraveling of their stylistic melange, but in the fusion of emotional candor, electronic technique, and conceptual art strategies." - Jenn Pelly, Pitchfork
