The Stone Eye’s “Raindrops” Has Echoes Of Their Early Work

Philadelphia Rock band The Stone Eye, have released the single “Raindrops”. Following their latest full-length album in April 2023 titled Fata Morgana, the original core members of the band, including Stephen Burdick and Jeremiah Bertin decided to hit the studio, revisit their roots, and incorporate the musical experience they’ve gained over the years.

The new track has the “raw, heavy, and condensed sounds” of the band’s earlier works and represents a renewed focus on their sound and trajectory.

Stephen Burdick comments:

“Raindrops” is in many ways, a return to form for the band. Following our latest LP and the departure of a couple of members, the band found itself consisting of its original two core members, Jeremiah and I (Stephen). Instead of rushing to fill-in the gaps left behind, we decided to try and revisit the original songwriting formula whilst applying the experience we have accumulated over the years.

Thus, that’s how “Raindrops” came to be. The tune definitely has some ‘modern’ Stone Eye elements to it, e.g. odd time signatures and unexpected detours, but it also definitely hits in a way that is reminiscent of our earlier work- raw, heavy, and condensed. It’s an old meets new for us, and it’s pretty damn cool.

As The Stone Eye looks ahead to the future, they feel that their story is far from complete. They continue to excavate Alternative Rock, blending in Stoner and Progressive Rock elements.
