STONE is a four piece band from Liverpool, consisting of Fin Power (Front Man/Guitar), Sarah Surrage (Bass), Elliot Gill (Lead Guitar) and Alex Smith (Drums). Their debut single ‘Leave It Out’ reaching over 90K streams within a year and their second release ‘Don’t Stop’ reaching almost 26K.
‘Fuse’ is a modern punk track with Fin’s undeniably iconic Scouse vocals and wordplay. The Gen Z band take inspiration from all avenues, from AJ Tracey to, IDLES, to The Streets. It becomes clear that you can hear the rhythm like spoken-word of Mike Skinner in Fin.
Reflecting on the track the band explain: “Lyrically, ‘Fuse’ was written about being frustrated with our everyday reality. The verses of the songs provide a contrast between the vernacular, everyday activities that would otherwise come off as benign i.e. buying a scratch-off and a pint of milk and Fin’s turbulent inner monologue, both of which exasperated by the transition from adolescence to manhood, the isolation of living alone and especially during the COVID era.”
It’s interesting to hear a unique sound and combination from an up-and-coming band like STONE. Being still a young band having found they’re own style and sound, they’ll be a national treasure on no time.
