DUBLIN, County Dublin
The Stoles bring to their songs the energy of The Clash and a guitar sound flavored with essence of home-country legend, The Edge. What the band adds to that blend are pop/punk-infused vocal harmonies and a post-modern melodic slant. Formed in 2012, The Stoles released their eponymous EP in 2013, recorded at the renowned Westland Studios (whose client list is absolutely jaw-dropping). The Stoles are building upon their debut by working on a full-length follow-up and booking an ambitious stretch of live performances. The Dublin-based outfit is composed of bassist Antonio Derosas, guitarists Jacek Matysiak and Clement Tournay and Marcel Preiss on drums ; Although none of the members hail from the city, The Stoles have successfully adapted their bright, upbeat songwriting to the city's storied melancholic history.
