Bio

A bone-thumping mix of reggae-rock, blues grunge and sick twists of dub-beats, STOKA is bursting tastebuds with their salty-chicken flavour, and tearing into the Melbourne music scene.
STOKA have been producing mouth-watering spectacles across the Melbourne music scene. Playing alongside talented acts such as The Montreals and The Lulu Raes, as well as big time players; Goldmember, Bootleg Rascal and Boo Seeka.
Front-man Az channels classic rocky vocals, while his guitar fingers dance from clean blues to the most jalapeno-flavoured grunge. Younger brother Bo lays down sick and twisted drum beats with psychic skill while big man Moose exudes smooth style, and even smoother sangria rhythm guitar. Bassman Scotty B ties it all together with his heart pumping, crowd thumping grooves. With the three other bois creating a crooning angelic back up melody to Az's Vedder-ish growl, the chemistry these lads cook up is something not to be missed. Inspired by the greats like Pearl Jam and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and bounded with the Sureshaker crew, STOKA are tearing their way to be the next big thing.
Stay salty.

Yeah, I can get around this. Unusual tone/accent in the vocals. I like that it's not very clear. This one's a huge grower too. It seems to draw you in and then draw you back out throughout. It certainly makes you want to stick around.
