Baroness‘ eagerly-awaited new album, “Stone” is out now, along with self-created video for the track “Anodyne“.
Guitarist/vocalist Gina Gleason shared:
‘Anodyne‘ is one of the more pointed songs of ‘Stone’. It throws you directly into a dreamy fuzz world with a super driving groove and loads of guitar layers. It does not take its time to unfold, in contrast to a lot of the record, but there are plenty of peaks and valleys packed into this three-and-a-half minute ride!
Guitarist/vocalist John Baizley added:
An important through line in Baroness is we don’t like to repeat ourselves. It’s all about the willingness to take risks. When I was younger, the whole point of music was to be different, not to do the same thing, and not to listen to parents or play by the rules. That’s kind of goofy, but in practice, it works. It’s really sort of terrifying to be at the sixth record in your career and think that you’ll have to keep up with your history rather than continually invent. So, we doubled down on continuously inventing to see where it takes us. I think this record is a good reflection of that. ‘Stone’ is a lot more alive, more direct.
