Is it just us, or are there a lot of great female-fronted bands as of late? Well, be prepared to add Stone Darling to that list. Coming from Los Angeles, Liv Mrasico, Lindsay Dawn, Mikki Itzigsohn and Paige Stark were a favorite of this year’s SXSW festival and recently featured in Nylon Magazine. With the same current sound as Sleigh Bells and Metric, a throwback to Mazzy Star, and a bit of Dusty Springfield ‘60s countrified soul, these four lovely ladies are generating buzz.
Below, Stone Darling brings their sun-drenched harmonies to Funkadelic’s “Can You Get to That,” a warm choral frolic to play while cruising town with the windows down. The guitar riff looped through their sweet vocals is the perfect combination to introduce these gals and their groovy sound. Having only released a handful of songs since forming in 2009, we look forward to hearing more from this quartet in the future.
