Stolas - ‘Stolas’ Cover

A bold statement.

Mind-bending rhythms overlaid with bold melodies is the name of the game on this third album from Las Vegas residents Stolas; hints of everything from Circa Survive to Panic! At The Disco going in the sonic blender.

Opener ‘Anhedonia’ soars with this airy mix of styles, ‘Maximiser’ has a real neon swing to it and ‘Euphoria’ even throws in an unexpected hair-flowing guitar solo.

At times things do veer out of focus – any memorable hooks swiftly whisked away on ‘Bellweather’ and the lengthy ‘Cold & Unmanageable’ – but for anyone with a flair for the eccentric, this is absorbing stuff.
