"Stolen Peace EP"

Stolen Peace
This is the third EP release from Stolen Peace. The
complimentary biog gives Queens of The Stone
Age and Radiohead as their initial influences, but
Stolen Peace has a wealth of different sounds with
soul, blues and classic rock also bubbling beneath
the surface. It's a 5 track EP (with professional art
work) and opening track Motion Sickness is immediately
appealing with its radio-friendly arrangements
and catchy melody. Lead singer Liam has a
strong and flexible voice and whilst the swaggering
vocals lead the songs, they are supported by a
band that write and play with confidence. The style
and atmosphere varies somewhat throughout the
EP, but this can only go in their favour at this time.
It will be interesting to see how the forthcoming
album turns out. Whilst the slower soul / blues style
songs are good, the upbeat and catchier tracks on
here (Motion Sickness / This I Know) sound more
like the direction Stolen Peace should be taking.

"Stolen Peace"

Stolen Peace, Nothin' Less, Jelly's Last Jam, Star 27 @ Harry's Bar, Chorley
From the Chorley Citizen, first published Tuesday 28th Nov 2006.

Stolen Peace, our openers tonight, had this reviewer fooled. Wrongly pegging them as grungy pop, it takes a couple songs to pin down their real inspiration.

Sure enough, as the set progresses the spirit of none other than Jeff Buckley weaves its way through their music, an epic slant propelled by the singer's powerful vocal chords.

They take a very heads-down approach, with the space between songs minimal and usually host only to the name of the following number.

As the set progresses they work in a more restrained, soulful number, the band pulling back to let the vocalist do the work, weaving through impressive aural contortions that put the song in a whole other space.

Another song is tougher, more angular, with the singer pushing at the top of his range.

For their penultimate number the band stretches out into a wild epic, dark and intense.

It's a wall-of-sound, climaxing under a siren-song guitar howl, and it would be an ideal closer, yet the band throw in a surprise with a cover of Dusty Springfield's "Son Of A Preacher Man."

It invites comparisons to the White Stripes (also fond of covering songs originally by women without switching the gender of the lyrics) that the band probably won't care for, and it does lose a little something for being rocked up, but it's still an interesting way to close the set.

They even get in a quick drum-solo just as its drawing to the end, true rock and roll entertainment!

Bio

Stolen Peace have been hanging together since school, brothers Joe and Tom Oakes, neighbour Ste Rowlatt and school geek turned rock god Liam Walsh have established themselves on the Manchester rock scene. They evoke memories of traditional English rock but there’s a modern energy that makes them fresh, instant, explosive and one of the tightest, dynamic acts on the circuit. Influenced by Queens of The Stone Age, Led Zep, Black Sabbath, Muse, Rage Against The Machine, Radiohead and every record they ever bought they produce a hammer blow of a sound wrapped in the raw beauty of Liam’s voice. Despite the self deprecating northern humour, the lads have something special, and they know it.
