Release date: November 25th 2019. Label: Self Released. Format: DD

Sweetspot – Tracklisting



Nicky Ray


Sweetspot is the new single from Psychedelic Stoner Rockers – Stonus – and it’s a heavy blast of old-school Psychedelic Desert/Stoner Rock with flashes of Alternative Rock and Doom based grooves allowing the band to have a heavier sound than you would expect.

The band are releasing their new album later this year but this song won’t be on this album. However, it’s a good indication on what to expect from the new album. Sweetspot does have an a raw sounding appeal to it but it’s heavy from the start and allows the band to play a more powerful style of Psychedelic Stoner Rock/Metal.

The band have stated the following about the song - “The new single "Sweetspot" is a 5:44 minute fully analogue track from the Cypriot Heavy rockers Stonus, recorded mixed and mastered at WRECK It SOUND Studios in Corinth, Greece under the supervision of the one and only George Leodis!🤘

Its a hot and teasing new single filled with raw energy and dirty riffs perfectly accompanied by the superb art of Renay Roussou 👌. "Sweetspot" is a representation of young fearless love, experimentation and anger...”

My advice is to get with the program and check out this cool song now. You won’t be sorry.
