Its style encompasses elements of indie, rock, pop and alternative. "It makes no sense to try to exactly define the band's style, because what may be perceived as pop in Britain is very often taken as alternative here in the Czech Republic and additionally, those who claim to play pop here...
well, it's usually a waste of time to talk about them..." thinks Living Room. However, they are obviously inspired mainly by British or American bands including trendy 70s and 80s retro wave; but surprisingly they also don't refuse to listen to electronic music or even hip-hop. By the way, has it crossed your mind that the name of the band comes from the album of Norwegians Jagga Jazzist called "A Living Room Hush"...? 2. Living Room is a Swiss singer-songwriter group formed in 2004.

The three members of the band are bound together by a long-standing friendship and different conjoint projects. Miriam Schweizer (voice and guitar) and Simon Gysi (bass, backing vocals) have worked together intensively since 2004.

It is currently based in Saskatoon, SK.
Canada. Stasis is a six-part ambient suite home recorded by Stooshinoff over a nine-month period. He worked in collaboration with visual artist Zac Knuttila to produce a full-length video designed to be a visual companion to the music. Stasis was formed from a long period of experimentation. Somewhere along the way, Stooshinoff began making drones and ambient music.
Distancing himself from structures of absolute beginnings and endings, the songs of Stasis began to coalesce into something more complete, a unified piece with connecting movements just as important as each song. Stasis is a meditation on the pillars that ground us, and a reconciliation of the forces that change us. It is an exploration of self, with songs intended to evoke the sounds and emotions of Stooshinoff’s Ayahuasca experiences, repetition and continuity meant to reflect a constant and disorienting headspace, and lyrics about value, loss, and the importance of self-control.
