Rediscovering the Pulse of Italian Rock: Posh highlights Their Electrifying Single “Stoned

In the landscape of alternative rock, few bands have managed to leave an indelible mark while continually redefining their sound as effectively as Posh. Formed in 2001, this Italian trio, comprising Salvo Minnella, Federico Salemi, and Alberto Minnella, captured the essence of a generation. Their dynamic presence was so potent that they were chosen to represent Italy at the prestigious 2007 International Midem Festival in Cannes, a testament to their status as Italy’s most promising emerging band.

After a decade of electrifying performances and critically acclaimed releases, Posh took an unexpected hiatus in 2009, leaving a void in the hearts of their fans. Yet, like all great legends, their story was far from over. In 2021, Posh returned with a powerful rendition of Kate Bush’s iconic “Running Up That Hill,” reigniting the spark that had never truly extinguished. This comeback paved the way for a series of new singles, including “Mr. Anyone,” “Time Has Come,” “Plan B,” and “Open Arms,” all culminating in the release of their celebrated album, *Port Out Starboard Home* in March 2022.

Fast forward to June 30, 2024, and Posh once again defies expectations with the release of their latest single, “Stoned.” Marking their first track since the album, *Port Out Starboard Home*, “Stoned” embodies the quintessential Posh sound—a harmonious blend of melody and raw energy. This single plunges listeners into an emotionally charged experience, capturing the turbulence and redemption found in the battle against drug addiction.

“Stoned” is not just a song; it’s a narrative woven with powerful lyrics and riveting instrumentation. It delves into the harrowing effects of substance abuse, juxtaposed with the yearning for liberation and self-reclamation. From the first chord, the track’s gripping intensity is palpable, drawing the listener into a sonic landscape where anguish meets hope.

Salvo Minnella’s vocal delivery is both haunting and empowering, echoing the pain of entrapment and the euphoria of breaking free. Federico Salemi’s guitar riffs are nothing short of mesmerizing, providing a perfect balance between aggression and melody. Alberto Minnella’s percussive prowess anchors the track, driving it forward with relentless precision.

The release of “Stoned” represents more than just a new chapter for Posh—it is a declaration of resilience and artistic evolution. The band’s ability to tackle such profound themes with authenticity and finesse speaks to their maturity and depth as musicians. This track not only resonates with those who have faced similar struggles but also stands as a beacon of hope for those seeking redemption.

As Posh continues to redefine their legacy, “Stoned” is a reminder of their unwavering dedication to their craft and their audience. Their journey, marked by hiatus and resurgence, mirrors the very essence of their music: a continuous cycle of struggle and triumph.

For long-time fans and new listeners alike, “Stoned” offers a poignant glimpse into the heart of Posh. It is a testament to their enduring relevance and an exciting indication of what lies ahead. As they stand on the precipice of a new era, Posh proves once again why they remain a formidable force in the alternative rock scene.
