Hailing all the way the Queensland, the now Geelong-local Jake Peasley has released his four track EP under the project Stankid.
Stankid’s four track EP mixes beachy acoustics and vocals with rocky/bluesy tones, creating a totally unique, exciting sound. The opening track, Candylane opens with a relaxed instrumental and strong vocals – making for a great introduction to the rest of the album.
The second track, ‘Crazy Maybe’ begins with gentle finger-picking, however takes a turn soon into something that is upbeat and very rock. ‘Blues Chues’ takes this upbeat pace and rocks on for another 4 and a half minutes, decorated with the electrifying sounds of harmonica. ‘Early morning’, the last track brings listeners back to a more gentle, acoustic tune with sweet harmonies echoing in the distance.
Backed by a four piece band, Inner Child is predominantly influenced by punk and blues, giving listeners multiple genres in just one sitting. From reggae to thrash, the four song EP alone delivers a new flavour with every track.
