Yearning for a slice of ‘Happiness’ Melbourne five piece Smoke Rings plug-in with a bittersweet new single from their double A side 7″ Go To Hell and a string of live dates.
Strengthening their penchant for writing incredibly well constructed melodies, ‘Happiness’ sees the band once again pay homage to 90s brit-pop in three minutes and thirty three seconds of clever instrumentation and cavalier lyrics. Recorded with producer extraordinaire Malcolm Besley (City Calm Down, The Creases), the band take a sonic leap forward from their debut self titled offering while retaining their signature melancholy.
Pricking ears with 2016 single ‘Rose Coloured Glasses’ from their debut EP, Smoke Rings achieved spins and praise from triple j’s Richard Kingsmill and Dom Alessio. With an add to triple j’s sister station Double J and love from key community radio stations nationwide, they’ve been solidifying a strong national profile and will head out on the road later this month. No strangers to sticky stage floors and eager crowds, Smoke Rings have impressed on bills alongside Northeast Party House, Moses Gunn Collective, Green Buzzard, Jarrow and Good Boy. Smoke Rings will surface ‘Happiness’ on the live stage when the band support Siamese in Adelaide and formidable electric lady Ali Barter in September/October.
