It has now been exactly 2 decades since The Stereoflowers released their debut album, “The Day We Lost Control,” before going on to make their mark on the punk rock scene for a while and then taking an insanely long break that almost felt like forever…the good news is that Micah Klotz and producer Bryan Borgman are back together with Matt on drums, and it’s about to go down! A firebrand rock outfit that channels explosive emotionality into rousing anthems they cleverly coin as ‘punk rawk’, The Stereoflowers always seek to tell personal stories and news stories through these perspectives, but in ways that are relatable to everyone. They exude a certain inflammatory centeredness that feels poetically aligned with the origins of the band’s name—an apt archetypal reference for such a strong and unique band.
Acting as the saving grace of punk rock, The Stereoflowers are bringing back the lost glory of organic rock music with their self-titled EP; “The Stereoflowers”- a 4-track piece that features compelling tracks with bold lyricism, exalted themes, and metallic instrumental arrangements.
From this 6 minutes, 35 seconds of performance, you can absolutely experience the vivid efficiency of the genre; this EP is just a prime example of how The Stereoflowers have always produced art that invokes conversations through their quintessentially passionate and raw energy!
“Last Love Song for Humanity” is a refreshing grunge with punk and rock elements that have been superbly produced and suited for radio, series placement, and of course a live gig. This banger is full of energy to get you hooked from start to finish, with a particularly strong male lead who fits in perfectly for his role!
This track actually recalls the 1990s punk rock tradition of balancing appeal and message. With a dynamic rhythm section, punk-infused energy, and passionate lyrics about humans acting like robots, this track is unique, raw, and emotional—not to mention that it is a powerful anthemic rock song that has a howling presence!
In just under 44 seconds, The Stereoflowers create an electrifying punk masterpiece that is sure to deeply resonate with its listener thanks to intense emotionality, raw energy, and a supercharged rhythm. You know that this is a classic masterpiece because it is just 44 seconds long, and the 44 seconds are enough. This track stands as a formidable testament to The Stereoflowers’ artistry within the genre, and did I mention how much I just love that solo guitar intro? It’s just epic!
“The Wall” is also short and extremely sweet, with a very sensitive subject matter at its heart. Through the drummer’s menacing rage and the guitarist’s untamed willpower, we witness The Stereoflowers’ unbridled passion.
The last track, “Punk Rawk Ninja,” has a nice combination of clean and melodic electric guitar notes countered by the fast-paced, distorted riffs. This track has a certain amount of pizzazz & flair that adds a nice touch of catchiness to the track. This track also possesses that vibrant alternative rock feel. The raw intensity of the guitar riffs, backed by the arena-sized drums, are my favorite bits from this instrumental showcase!
This is what intensively raw, organic punk rock music tastes like, and it is such an honor to review such epic work as this from seasoned, incredibly diversified musicians who have been in the game long enough to know what has been missing and act with haste to deliver exactly that!
There is even more reason to be excited since The Stereoflowers are now working tirelessly, on their new full-length album, which they hope will be out in due time.
