“Torquay rock band The Stone Angels follow up their 2012 debut album, with their self-titled 4 track EP. Frontman and founding member Dan Hughes really mixes up the genres and styles on this release, and it almost serves as a showcase to any listening record companies as to how adaptable they are. Opening cut 'Hard Hearted Woman' kicks off with a guitar riff that Rival Sons would be proud of, and the hard rocking tale of the heart breaking girl is classic rock fodder. Next up is 'Valley of the Kings', which could have been lifted off any Magnum album in the last 20 years, all rhythmic drumming, synths and an insanely singable chorus. 'Take Me' changes direction again, and we’re almost in dance music territory, again with a ridiculously memorable beat and chorus. It's been an ear worm all day. Final track Have 'Mercy On Me' is the weakest for me, being a more generic rock song that just meanders rather than arrives anywhere. You’ll be hearing the melodies running around head.”
