After two years of relentless touring both locally and internationally, Melbourne psych-rockers Stonefield are back with an exciting glimpse of what is to come in 2015. Hailing from regional Victoria, the four sisters have just released their latest offering ‘Golden Dream’, first previewed on Home & Hosed last Monday.
The track showcases a dreamier, more psychedelic sound than previously heard from the four-piece. The track illustrates a distinct evolution for the band, stripping their trademark thundering sound back into a woozy, sparkling gem. The smooth pop production is a stark departure from their 2013 release, and ‘Golden Dream’ shows the depth of perspective and maturity evident in lead singer Amy Findlay’s progression over the past two years.
Produced by Mark “Kram” Maher of Spiderbait fame, ‘Golden Dream’ is a dreamy, psychedelic haze of pop. Listeners can expect more of this softer style to come, with Kram set to produce the quartet’s follow-up release which is set to come out later this year.
“The song has a real sense of female strength. It thrives on the energy of a man longing for her to come back to him. It’s a woman’s perspective of the classic masculine band-on-the-road story – reassuring their partner back home that they’ll come back to them. I love that the strength of the female presence is contrasted by the more delicate vocal,” says Amy Findlay.
The four-piece will hit the road this June/July in support of ‘Golden Dream’ playing metro and regional centres throughout the country, giving crowds a taste of some of the currently unheard tracks from their anticipate sophomore album due for release in late 2015.
