Nothing Is Still is, at its core, an album dedicated to Vynehall’s grandparents.
Vynehall says the LP has been in the works for nearly four years. It's dedicated to his grandparents, who emigrated from the UK to New York City in the '60s-a part of his family history that he'd been only vaguely familiar with before his grandfather's death four years ago. Seeing old photos and talking with his grandmother about the couple's experiences led to the album's creation . Nothing Is Still marks his first appearance on Ninja Tune.

Every once in awhile an album comes along that bears repeat listening do to it's effortless musicality and the tone it sets. For me this is one of those albums. Reply Notify me Helpful. The great artwork by Trevor Jackson! WOW!
The album was conceptualized after Vynehall's grandfather passed away, and his grandmother presented him with vintage photographs of the two of them - they had emigrated from England to the United States during the 1960s. As Vynehall talked with his grandmother and learned more about his grandparents' story, he began composing reflective music which could easily soundtrack a montage of old memories and artifacts.

Leon Vynehall is still a relatively young man. Less than a decade into his career, on Nothing Is Still, he has embarked on an incredibly ambitious project that shows an altogether different side of his music making and artistic expression. And considering his track record in the curation of events, there's no doubt that this significant talent would prove a success in whichever direction he chooses to apply himself. As an artistic endeavor, it is a laudable milestone for Vynehall. But as an album that warrants repeated listens, over many years? That will be for fans to decide.
