Stonefield have been rendering their powerful mosaic of proto-psych, since they were only as tall as the smallest of the strange stone formations that surround their home town in Australia’s rural South-East. From within their stellar nebulae, the four Findlay sisters have pressed light years into days and agitated tidal patterns across the globe, for more than a decade.
Their sophomore record ‘As Above, So Below’ (2016) laid a Sabbath-strata, from which they’ve launched a legion of followers, festival dates and world tours, hitting the road with everyone from Meat puppets to Fleetwood Mac, they’ve traversed in ways that few others have.
Stonefield’s latest single ‘Delusion’, and first for Flightless Records, demonstrates a shift from the hardened psych pop of earlier records toward more prog and heavy metal. Heavy waves of operatic synth and tubular bells ring below guitars with mellotron lines that warn you that humans don’t belong in space.
Keep an eye on an album announcement in the new year…
