From a summer full of festivals right off the bat of their UK headline tour, to Polydor’s latest signing – STONE have had an absolute corker of a 2022 so far, and it just gets better and better with their new single ‘Waste’.
The Liverpool-based band, who recently played Finsbury Park in support of Sam Fender, are always on the money when it comes to indie rock bangers with a punk-punch, and this is no exception.
The heavily-distorted and slightly detuned guitar part feels nostalgic to that of early Nirvana and isn’t completely drowned in effects, really allowing us to hear the rawness of those angsty vocals we all know and love. The track seems to display a message of to try and not give a damn about what anyone else thinks about you, although sometimes it can become an obsession, getting into your head and sending you into a whirlwind of thinking that you’re ‘Waste’. Seems relatable…right?
The anger of this message is portrayed massively through Fin’s (STONE’s frontman/guitarist) somewhat breathless yet authentic vocals, and you can tell it truly comes from a place of experience and frustration.
Yet again, Stone have smashed a very real interpretation of everyday life in this track, and continue to carve the way for youthful indie-rock artists on the Liverpool music scene. Check out their music below, and if you’re yet to see their attitude in all its glory (or are dying to see it again) – catch them at Neighbourhood Festival this October, or grab some tickets for Inhaler later on that month, where they’ll be supporting.
