Portsmouth’s newest driving force on the heavy, blues rock scene The Stone Birds are back with their second single of 2019, ‘The Joker‘. Now a four-piece, the band are solidifying their already brash but melodic rock sound. Minimal, rugged guitars and poetic, story-telling lyrics are the driving force behind ‘The Joker’ and although it has a monotonous side, it’s a concise offering overall. Listen to the end and you’ll only be left wanting more.
Although only a three-piece and only on their second gig at the time, The Stone Birds won through to the semi finals of Hot Vox’s Isle of Wight Festival, New Blood competition back in March. The band have a few gigs coming up over the next few weeks, so if you like what you hear you can catch them at the following:
30th April – The Joiners, Southampton – Isle of Wight Festival, New Blood competition semi-finals
9th May – The Edge of the Wedge, Southsea – supporting Pioneers
