Liverpool punks, STONE are back with their angsty new single ‘Fuse’
The Liverpool punk quartet pulls inspiration from all sorts of places from grime and modern-day punk; the likes of AJ Tracey and his animated flow and IDLES’ punk energy.
Luckily enough they’ve released another genre-blending banger in the form of ‘Fuse’. Upon first listen musically the track doesn’t sound like a massively aggressive punk tune, but the punk element lies within the deeply frustrated lyricism of frontman Fin Power. The coming of age theme fits perfectly with Fin’s raw and gritty vocals and is the heart and soul of the track – the process of making your way into adulthood is a limbo that can only be liberated with an attack similar to theirs.
The riffs on the track race and blow you away with a massive sense of urgency leading up to a short and sweet guitar solo, whilst drums drill the track forward with uncaged vocals setting in. Angsty music for an angsty tune, what’s not to love? ‘Fuse’ is meant to be overwhelming just like the process of learning how to be an adult is; suffocating and making you feel like you’re drowning in a pool of loneliness, but entwined within that is a level of comfort, solidarity, and oneness knowing that these punks from Liverpool are one and the same as you.
