Stellar Lane: Follow Your Mind

When grunge went global in the early Nineties, thousands of bands were formed to play their version of DIY heartfelt garage rock. The genre continues to inspire and Tel Aviv quintet Stellar Lane have picked the heavy handed melodies of Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots as their frames of reference on their new EP Follow Your Mind.

Their lyrics deserve a closer look: Balloons takes a harsh look at consumerism and Fairy Tale is a love song about a doomed relation. The latter was produced by Tim Palmer (of Pearl Jam's seminal album Ten fame), but the other tracks sound a lot more alive, especially the power ballad No One with its proggy guitar lines and wall-to-wall keyboards.

Dotan Kalmar: guitar
Adam Younger: bass
Eyal Golan: drums
