Led by Anastasia Walker’s powerful vocals, Stone Cold Superstar sounds like arena-sized rock sprinkled with a power pop sentiment. “I can be a king or a queen when I want,” straight from the opening lines the track is an unapologetic exercise in psyching yourself up, making the track a much-needed dose of self-belief.
Since forming in 2010, the Yorkshire natives have always championed empowerment. Writing on twitter, the band stated, “Be your own superstar. The age of looking to celebrities and ‘wannabe’s’ as personal heroes is over, we want you to look in the mirror instead. Turn it up loud, self-empowerment imminent.”
Musically, the track feels bigger and bolder than before and it’s already easy to see ‘Stone Cold Superstar’ will be a huge hit at a live gig. With stomping beats and thunderous guitars ‘Stone Cold Superstar’ is an energetic and lively, which wouldn’t feel out of place on the soundtrack of a blockbuster action film.
After supporting Pink during her European tour last year, it’s clear the band have big ambitions for the future; ambitions which, with songs like ‘Stone Cold Superstar’ could soon be realised.
