Live Review: Stonefield + Ride Into The Sun - The Gov, Adelaide (01.05.14)

About a year ago my friend dragged me along to see the all-girl rock group Stonefield, and I am so glad he did. It was a revelation to see such a clean and pure rock act in an age of pop. Since then, the four Findlay sisters from country Victoria have gone from strength to strength, recently releasing their debut, self-titled LP as well as embarking upon a seemingly endless tour around the country. This week, that road returned them to Adelaide.
