Stone Clocks

Written By: Joe Berridge

 

Yes, it’s that time of the month again! Northside Music has been lucky enough to see and hear an absolutely compelling STONE CLOCKS show! Conceived in the backstreets of Melbourne, STONE CLOCKS are a four-piece rock band that are determined to make you throw your arms up in the air. They captivated the audience with their electric on-stage energy and delivered all the flavours necessary to make anyone’s musical palette salivate. They have recently got quite a bit of media attention, performing three live tracks for The Party Show on 3RRR.

 

Their single Vegas is a nostalgic, feel-good song about losing your inhibitions and having a good time.

 

STONE CLOCKS are soon releasing their new single Vegas, but you can see a sneak preview on YouTube or Triple J Unearthed. Their single Vegas is a nostalgic, feel-good song about losing your inhibitions and having a good time. A key line from the verse is “Do you remember the time we were driving to Vegas, we were out of our mind, but having a good time!” And from the well-crafted catchy chorus: “Hey! Where we going now? I don’t know and I don’t care!” This pop rock song is getting quite a bit of radio play and YouTube attention.

When asked about inspiration and influential bands the STONE CLOCKS say that the Queens of the Stone Age (QOTSA) are their main influence. Here is what they had to say, “The Queens produce an original sound with clever lyrics and a catchy vocal melody. If we could aspire to sound like any band it would be them.” Now the STONE CLOCKS do play some chromatic chord progressions that seem influenced by QOTSA but overall they are bringing together some unique sounds with a real rock ‘n’ roll feel.

It would be difficult to find another group of musicians whose musical talents are also heavily influenced by their culture. With a lead singer from South Africa, a Macedonian lead guitarist, a Swiss drummer and a bass player from not-so-distant New Zealand, STONE CLOCKS are a multicultural cocktail who have come together in the back alleys of Melbourne to bring you something you have never experienced. They are able to produce post-grunge progressive grooves that will have your heart pounding and leave you with a desire to hear more.

These guys are causing a ruckus around the streets so if you see them give them a high-five, the finger or both! If you want to dance, scream and have a fun night out while supporting the local Melbourne music scene, definitely check these guys out.

Upcoming shows:
Friday 5th July at the Espy Gershwin room – Kings and Queens showcase gig with special guets
Friday 12th July at the Eukeka Hotel in Richmond with Orsome Welles, The Electric I and guests
Friday 26th July at the Noise Bar in Brunswick with Orsome Welles, Bear the Mammoth and guests
