Just How High
Blustering amounts of energy is dripping out of London Stone’s latest 3-song EP Just How High. The Toronto four-piece band comprises of Jordan McCracken, Matthew Betti, Alan Duffy, and Matt Benedetti. The band’s past and present includes the helping hands of producer/head chef, Alex Gamble (Arkells, Broken Social Scene) and mastering engineer, Brock McFarlane (Carly Rae Jepsen, Marianas Trench, k-os)
The psychedelic rock group launched their epic first album Neon Blind back in 2017, which took listeners on a roller coaster of emotions from start to finish with “Inside Out (Hear Them Say)” ‘s psychedelically ferocious guitar riffs to “The Fold” ’s heartfelt lyrics. Now with the release of Just How High, London Stone brings forth roaring rhythms, guitar riffs galore, and speed comparable to Wu-Tang clan, Queens of The Stone Age, and Royal Blood.
Just How High hits listeners from the very first second of “I Just Might” with a catchy guitar riff and pounding drums, and shines a light on Jordan McCracken’s vocal range, reminiscent of Royal Blood’s 2017 track “Lights Out” on How Did We Get So Dark. Following swings in the album’s title track, “Just How High” throws psychedelic rock explosions from left, right, and center. The first five minutes of this EP will definitely take you on a shocking ride, followed by the steady closing of “You’re So Sick”. The track fuses an impressive mix of fills, riffs, and hooks that will have you wanting to move from side to side.
The entirety of London Stone’s Just How High is a perfect balance of heavy, crushing all three tracks with guitar and drum jams that will surely impress new, old, and current listeners.
