The Stoles is an indie rock band from Dublin formed in 2012. Remarkably for a Dublin-based act, only one of the band members is native to Ireland. Displaying a unique blend of genres and musical directions, The Stoles combine the 60s glamour and 80s post-punk vigour with the psychedelic obscurity and early grunge authenticity.
Melodic and instantly recognizable, yet with a certain element of mystery and melancholy, the band doesn’t shy away from venturing into new territories and expanding its influences. The band’s initial achievements include building an impressive online following and recording their debut EP in the capital’s legendary Westland studios. The Stoles have just signed a publishing deal with German independent label Liquid Tree Records and released their debut self-titled EP on December 20th 2013.
