STONE have shared ‘Moto’, a new single from their just-arrived debut EP, ‘Punkadonk’.
It follows the lead single ‘Money (Hope Ain’t Gone)’, which was previously shared alongside the EP announcement. The band have already confirmed a headline tour for Spring 2023, which you can find tickets and full dates for here.
On the new track, STONE commented: “‘Moto’ was written about when Fin [Power, lead singer] kept losing his iPhone. He got so sick of it that he eventually just went into Tesco and asked for the cheapest phone, and it was a Motorola. He eventually loved the Motorola and had the ringtone stuck in his head with a drum beat behind it.”
On the full project, guitarist Elliot Gill reflects; “Our music is just a conduit to all the emotion that we all feel. We’re living in this scary sensational world of social media, where everything is overexposed and overwhelming. But we’re all in it as a generation. Me and Fin have our own struggles with mental health, and I think that’s why we do what we do with such an intensity; we put up that part of ourselves onstage just to give kids an opportunity to connect with something.”
