Brighton noise pop quartet Morning Smoke are set to release their third single, ‘Soft Decay’ on 4th December and we loved this fuzzy track so much, we’ve chosen it as our Track of the Day!
The band have released an EP, ‘In Euphoria’ and two singles ‘Hunger’ and ‘Unknown’, since forming in 2013, and already gained support from Radio 1 and XFM. Still, ‘Soft Decay’ might be their most impressive statement yet. Underpinned by Isaac Ide and Christopher Shaw’s inventive bass and drums, Milo McNulty and Max Wright wring thick fogs of distortion from their guitars, as McNulty passionately howls his way through the track.
Recorded by Rory Atwell, who has previously worked with Parma Violets, The Vaccines and Yuck, ‘Soft Decay’ is the kind of infectious, disaffected anthem you thought bands had stopped writing since the nineties.
On December 14thMorning Smoke play their single launch at The Green Door Store, Brighton.
Morning Smoke are:
Milo McNulty – lead vocals/guitar
Max Wright – lead guitar
Christopher Shaw – bass
Isaac Ide – drums/vocals
