Born and raised in the small rural town of DarraweitGuim in Victoria, Australia, four Findlay sisters – Amy, Hannah, Sarah and Holly – join forces to form the progressive psychedelic rock outfit Stonefield. And this month, Newcastle’s illustrious music venue The Cluny will open its doors to the Ozzie quartet, welcoming a night of high-octane psych-rock which is not to be missed.
Previously known as Lotah, Stonefield has over the past decade cut their teeth ‘rendering their powerful mosaic of proto-psych’ in the confines of their Australian hometown before most recently offering their unique take on psych-rock to the wider world, even touring with Fleetwood Mac in Australia for a run of three performances back in 2016.
In 2010, the band won the Triple J Unearthed High contest with their track ‘Foreign Lover’ and with the accolade came a period of high rotation on the airwaves of one of Australia’s most respected radio broadcasters.
After earning a wider following, Stonefield secured a Glastonbury performance in 2011 after having impressed with their performance at the One Movement Festival in Perth the following year. They performed second on the beloved John Peel Stage on the opening day of Glastonbury 2011.
Support on the night comes from French garage psych-rock band Slift and Newcastle’s fuzzy three-piece Cheap Lunch who are both set to impress whilst opening what is sure to be a night drenched in fuzzy psychedelic madness.
Stonefield plays The Cluny, Newcastle with support from Slift and Cheap Lunch on Sunday 8th July with doors opening at 19:30. Tickets, priced at £9.90 in advance (including booking fee), can be purchased online at thecluny.com or by contacting The Cluny’s Box Office on 0191 230 4474.
