Premiere: Stone Lions - New Year's Ghost
Darkinjung/Central Coast-based four-piece drop party starting new pop-punk anthem, take an advanced listen
Making waves in the pop-punk world over the last few years have been Stone Lions who have followed up last year’s fan favourite single Stay with their new upbeat earworm, New Year’s Ghost, out March 31 but premiering on Pilerats today.
Produced by Craig Wilkinson (RedHook) and mixed by James Paul Wisner (Underoath, Paramore), New Year’s Ghost is a two minute slice of slice modern pop-punk catchiness, pairing big fuzzed out riffs with trappy drums that build to soaring choruses where vocalists Michael Matthews and Chris Randles’ heartfelt, emotional vocals shine through.
On their new single, the band say "'New Year's Ghost' is a depiction of quintessential feelings associated with New Year's Eve parties and resolutions. We felt we got caught up in the blackout parties and social stigma which led us to write an uplifting, yet haunting song about it. Encapsulating the excitement, fear, intimacy and loneliness that is New Year's Eve."
