The Bright Smoke premieres single "Exit Door" + releases "Terrible Towns" LP at Mercury on 04.17

"Terrible Towns," the second LP from NYC dark side duo, The Bright Smoke, promises a furtherance away from the conventional pop sounds, and an instillation of despondent intrigue that creates, like the band's name, a positive vibe with a twang of the gloomy. The second single, entitled “Exit Door” (streaming) is a vocally driven pop tune of eerier familiarity, but with effectual harmonizing and distant guitar tones that creep up and down the skin. Singer Mia Wilson’s voice is a penetrating force that contrasts with the hazy mixture of reverbed guitars and the time-bomb tack of drums, but works together to command your attention and send chills down your spine. "Terrible Towns" is out this April, with the record release party scheduled for April 17th at the Mercury Lounge. – JP Basileo
