Heavy with a layer of glorious weirdness, Philadelphia based The Stone Eye are back at it again with their latest record, »Fata Morgana«. On this record, the band finds itself combining raucous, dirty guitar tones with clever musicianship, hypnic vocals, and a stylistically diverse range of songs.

Tracks such as the ominously titled »T.G.R« pummel you with funky yet tasteful weirdness, whilst »Not my Circus« guides you through a meticulously crafted landscape that can best be described as articulate minimalism. Listeners will find nods to punk with the track »Sacrilegious High«, and by the end, be taken through a progressive rock landscape only seldom explored by bands such as King Crimson with the 9 minute epic, »In Lieu Of Roses«. »Fata Morgana« is a record that is both representative of the band’s growth, as well as their continued blending of pop-sensibilities and musical weirdness.

Formed in 2014 by some buddies in High School with a shared love for music and endless amounts of ambition (sometimes to the point of absurdity), The Stone Eye is a band that prides itself in tackling multiple genres within one cohesive package; usually topped off with thunderous rhythm, loud guitars, and haunting vocals. It was not always this way though, and that’s part of the appeal.

Throughout the band’s long history, musical evolution and experimentation have been at the forefront of each member’s mind. What happens if you cross pop-sensibilities with traditional metal? Or maybe throw some funk in there for the ladies? Perhaps this song needs a hand pan? Why not! With every new release, The Stone Eye is providing new perspectives on tried genres, and that’s… well, cool. These upcoming releases are absolutely no exception to that now-established mantra, so strap on in, grab a beer, and enjoy the ride.
