Stonefield Far From Earth

7 out of 10

Stonefield has released Far From Earth on Flightless Records (April 2018). This is the third full-length from the Australian 4 piece hard rock band. Stonefield formed in 2006 with the 4 sisters Hannah Findlay (Guitar), Sarah Findlay (Keys), Amy Findlay (drums), Holly Findlay (bass). 

Stonefield

Far From Earth has fuzzed out instruments, synthesized organs and hard hitting rhythm with soaring pop style vocals. The music is dynamic, quieting down to make space for the vocals and to draw rhythmic intrigue then building up for good measure. The music stands in the territory between hard rock, dance, desert rock, and psychedelic rock placing it in position to reach a broad fan base.

Stonefield

Stonefield Far From Earth is a good album with high production value, great songs, and plenty of variety to enjoy. The musicians perform at a high level with each instrument adding to the whole and staying defined and impactful throughout. I docked points on this album for too much pop appeal and not enough experimentation and psychedelic vibes, ironically these items would increase the score in other reviews!! Stonefield is going to take the world by storm and this album truly puts them into the spotlight!
