|Welsh indie pop outfit Kidsmoke have announced the release of their latest track Waves, a gradual builder that immediately draws comparisons to the likes of Wild Nothing, Real Estate and Deerhunter.
Beginning with a solitary guitar and the combined pristine vocals of frontman Lance Williams (guitar) and Sophie Ballamy (guitar), ‘Waves’ leads into a soaring chorus, drenched in beautifully layered harmonies that hold your heart with its grip. The rest of the group (James Stickels – bass, Ash Turner – drums) are soon introduced, crafting an uplifting track that culminates in a cascade of guitar and vocals; the shared harmonies casting a harsh reminder that everything has to end.
With early support from John Kennedy (Radio X) and Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music) alongside appearances at Green Man Festival already under their belts, Kidsmoke’s profile looks set to grow in the coming months with several live dates in the pipeline.
Produced by Russ Hayes (Orange Sound Recording Studio, Penmaenmawr), Kidsmoke’s ‘Waves’ is released on 27th January and will be available on iTunes and Spotify. [via Super Cat PR]
