Brooklyn-based band, The Bright Smoke creates music with a dark art-rock edge, electronic experimentation, and bluesy undertones. Described by Filter Magazine as "...music that touches on different genres (with) a captivating voice and lyrics that balances between despair and hope," the collaboration of sound between musicians Mia Wilson and Quincy Ledbetter presents an enticing collection of eerie low-key vocals with harrowing melodies and rhythm accents.
The Bright Smoke released their third album Terrible Towns in May of 2015 and have been playing extensively throughout the US and Canada in support of the album ever since. Described by The Deli as "...promising 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," Terrible Towns was met with acclaim from fans and critics alike and named by New York Music Daily as one of the Best 50 albums of 2015.
Wilson and Ledbetter, blend their multi-instrumentalist compositions and songwriting into a wide variety of sounds, pulling influences from Patti Smith, PJ Harvey, Joy Division, experimental electronica, and 80's art rock to create the unique alt-noir, murky pop sound that differentiates The Bright Smoke from other bands of today.
