The first thing that’s striking about ‘Just Like You’ is the impact of the lead guitar, guided drums and suspense drawn from the silence followed by a memorable vocal hook. It opens with fiery strummed, blues-accented chords played on a six-string guitar; only complemented further by Chris Finney’s laid back vocals, re-creating the symphonic effect heard on “Stealing My Heart”. The Psychedelic Rock stylings of Alessio Pesaresi’s guitar become more obvious as a glissando chord glides into the tranquil verses.

‘Don’t You Know What I Mean’ initially stands out by virtue of being the B-sides ballad although this leads you into a fast/slow ballad/rocker dynamic, another testament to their great songwriting. The track comprises many of Stags signature sounds, with clean, funky chording, intricate solos and inimitable conversational vocal style, all topped off with the kind of bizarre stream-of-consciousness lyrical imagery that characterises much of the bands work.

Stags lead singer Chris Finney’s tenacious vocal style seems to bear influence from Jim Morrison displaying a unique broad range and ability to express well thought through hooks into dusty multi-pitched lyrics, clearly adapting a soft vocal style that he pushes throughout their tracks. It’s interesting to note Chris has never had any singing lesson, honing his skills from his Mother whilst growing up. Alessio Pesaresi’s hooky guitar style finds its roots in Blues taking inspiration from the sound of 90's Grunge bands such as NIrvana and Pearl Jam, explaining how he fuses early guitar rock and 90's heavy rock, with a hint of psychedelia. Alessio and Chris write all Stags songs together, expressively bouncing across two different worlds that uniquely shape each other. Complemented by Oisin Walsh’s bass and George Vallacks driving drums; ‘Just Like You’ is a great representation of what Stags are about.

“They stand alone in their unique and distinctive approach to songwriting” 5/5 AAA Music.

Both tracks are produced at The Secret Warehouse Of Sound Studio by Murillo "Muka" Sguillaro who notes how he is excited to be brought into the foundations of the group. With European tours under their belt Stags have displayed their sound at venues such as Liverpool's Cavern Club, Islington O2 Academy and The Borderline sharing the stage with Brooklyn’s Peanut Butter Lovesicle, L.A’s Queen Kwong, The Tricks and Bromheads.

Stags have organised a showcase in London to launch their ‘Just Like You’ single which will take place July 03 2014 at Hoxton Bar and Kitchen, hosted by Mama Group and Artrocker. They are also due to perform at the O2 Academy Islington along with a number of other dates and following European tour. A music video for ‘Just Like You’ is also on it’s way and will be published in the weeks leading to it’s release.
