NEW MUSIC: Kidsmoke – Passenger

0012156118_10

Welsh quartet Kidsmoke may have taken their name from a Wilco song (maybe?) but other than a lazy affable strum and an affinity for melody, these four from across the Atlantic make music that is much sunnier, breezier and indie-pop centric. There’s a refreshing simplicity and economy to their songwriting as hooky guitar lines ring out across jangly chords and vocals that bind it all together. They eschew anthems for a more studied intimacy and romanticism in their sound. You can hear the influence of The Smiths, Real Estate, Beach Fossils etc.

‘Passenger’ is the second single to come from their forthcoming debut LP.
