Mother Mother and Smoke Season recently performed at the Troubadour.
And photog Mallory Turner was there to shoot the show.
Smoke Season returns by releasing a music video for their new single “Loose,” off their forthcoming third EP Ouroboros (Greek for “tail-devouring snake”). And in true auteur fashion, the artistic duo have collaborated with director Scott Fleishman (from APLUSFILMZ) to create a four-part video series to accompany the release. The song is a beautiful burst of ethereal indie rock, pulsing beats, and spellbinding soul while the video tells the first chapter of a dramatic story between two teenage girls (portrayed by Lexi Ainsworth and Nicole Fox). Together, the music and video are aptly arresting and blatantly brilliant.
“Leave behind what you can’t chase.”
Smoke Season continues to awe by releasing a stellar music video for their latest leaked single “Bees.” The coed duo went DIY by constructing their own “honeycomb LED light installation” to give the shoot a hypnotic, psychedelic effect in between screen projections of varied natural scenery. The result is a spellbinding experience which aptly suits the song’s brooding pulse and soaring chorus.
Smoke Season continues their buzz by leaking the single “Bees.” In the same vein as their latest EP, Hot Coals Cold Souls, the track continues their signature fusion of soul-infused indie rock with electro pop production soaked in a western ambience:
“You get the honey without the sting.”
Smoke Season will perform on March 29th at Bootleg HiFi.
Behind every riveting song by Smoke Season is an even more riveting music video. Check out how the coed duo creatively accompanied the edgy pop soars and effervescent interludes of their latest single, “Opaque,” by swimming in a pool and bathing in milk:
Smoke Season will finish their “Cold Souls Tour” on December 16th at Bootleg HiFi.
Smoke Season‘s debut EP, Hot Coals Cold Souls, was recently released and showcases a diverse range of hazy sonics. Their first single, “Badlands,” carried an ethereal western soul, but “Opaque” blasts edgy pop soars in-between effervescent interludes. And of course, it ends with an eerie ghost town soundscape:
Smoke Season‘s first single, “Badlands,” off their forthcoming Hot Coals / Cold Souls EP expresses the ambience of a dust storm brewing in a ghost town. And a song with such a vigorous vibe naturally deserves a cinematic counterpart. Its music video shows the coed duo loitering around decrepit buildings in Joshua Tree (their sonically apt habitat) while playing with paint, cards, and guns. And yes, there’s plenty of smoky haze foreshadowing an eerie climax:
Free Bike Valet is proud to co-present Smoke Seasons‘ next performances at The Echoplex on August 4th and 18th.
Smoke Season is the collaboration of Gabrielle Wortman (of TEMP3ST) and Jason Rosen (formerly of Honor Society). The Hollywood-based coed duo brings experimental electronics to a Western soundstage by stomping out rhythms and layering haunting elements. But their not-so-secret weapon is Wortman’s wailing voice –always thick with soul and haze. Here’s their latest single, “Badlands,” off their forthcoming second EP, Hot Coals / Cold Souls, (due July 29th) which expresses the ambience of a dust storm brewing in a ghost town:
