If you don't want to feel old, uncool and talentless, then you'd better not check out Stonefield. The Melbourne sisters play 70s-inspired rock that oozes the effervescence of youth while showing a musical maturity that belies their tender years. Described by Triple J's Dom Alessio as "the best high school band in the country," Stonefield have embarked on a huge run of Australian dates over the past two weeks and are playing at the Northcote Social Club this Friday. If you're in the area, then you'd be a flipping idiot not to get along. Support comes from Kashmere Club and the brilliantly named Royston Vasie.
The buzz is spreading so far and wide about this quartet of siblings that festival goers back in Old Albion will be able to catch them at Glastonbury this summer. Exciting times indeed.
