A Quickie with Black Stone From The Sun

BlackStoneFromTheSunTwo piece rock outfit Black Stone From The Sun have been frequent flyers in the local music scene over the past 12 months, racking up a truly impressive number of live shows to increasingly good reports. This Saturday, April 19, sees the launch of their debut EP at Mojos, with support from Puck, Apache, Aborted Tortoise and Graphic Characters. We caught up with the gestalt entity that is guitarist Sean Mackay and drummer Jack Nelson.

How did Black Stone From The Sun com into being?
We met in high school sometime in 2006 but it wasn’t until mid 2012 that we decided to put some time aside and make some music together that we actually like.

What’s your sound? Who are you influences?
Garage/grunge rock. Nirvana, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Love Junkies.

How did the process of recording the EP go?
We recorded in a warehouse with producer Josh Amphlett. It was a very smooth process. We recorded seven songs in two days.

What would you say is the standout track?
I guess Sun Bleached Blues, people seem to like that one.

What’s on the horizon for you guys?
We’re currently demoing songs for our next EP which we’re hoping to record sometime this year.
