CMU Approved

Approved: Russell Dean Stone

By | Published on Wednesday 21 July 2010

Russell Dean Stone is a London-based singer-songwriter who, after previously going it solo, has been working with a full band over the past year. Fresh out of the studio, the three-piece have been working on tracks ‘Leather’ and ‘Summer Song’ with producer and former Test Icicle Rory Bratwell, and not to mention a guest appearance from legendary Damned drummer Rat Scabies.

The band sits effortlessly next to acts like Bat For Lashes and Florence And The Machine, whilst taking inspiration from Bauhaus and Depeche Mode. The Russell Dean Stone sound is heavy in drama and heavily influenced by Kenneth Anger and William Burroughs. But whilst there are knowing references aplenty this is no mess, but a well executed vision. You can catch all of this over at their MySpace.
