SMOKE SEASON RELEASE NEW VIDEO AND SUMMER SINGLE SWEETEST THING

LA buzz-duo Smoke Season are back with a new video and single Sweetest Thing. The slinky indie-pop anthem combines an earworm chorus with pulsating synths, summer-jam guitars and a fluid, subversive approach to gender roles and expectations.

“We believe that fluidity is the future. As people who embrace blurred lines between masculinity/femininity, sexual orientation and monogamy, we wanted the Sweetest Thing music video to be an exploration into all types of sexual fluidity” explains Gabby Bianco, half of Smoke Season. “The video uses dance as a metaphor to reject traditional binaries and allow us to literally slide between hetero-normative and same-sex pairings while simultaneously challenging dated notions of masculinity and monogamy.”

Keen visual artists and experimentalists as well as musical mad scientists, the band (Gabby Bianco and Jason Rosen) teamed up with fellow LA pop duo HOLYCHILD to create the Sweetest Thing concept and brought in dancers Charles Han and Candice Fox to create a smoky, sweaty visual extravaganza. HOLYCHILD lead singer Liz Nistico directed, edited and choreographed the video.
