Tackling the every day, picayune things of the average, down and out of luck characters, Cedarsmoke manages to spill out metaphor-laden lyrics that don’t beat around the bush. Despite these seemingly drab topics, their brand of rock rouses an enlivening and inspiring disposition.
Earlier in 2018, Cedarsmoke released their third EP, 'Kicked Out Of Eden'. In their dark-humoured fashion, these 6 charmingly gritty tracks dabbled in the ambivalence of life, love and the profane.
Now, mixing their pop-writing sensibilities with punk-rock, their new single's sombre story is contradicted by the upbeat energy - making this a riveting ode to the tragedy that will inexplicably stir emotions.
"There are some songs that just sound like they'd be evergreen pub favourites." (Gemma Pike, Triple J)
"Love this pastel painting of australiana" (Max Quinn, Triple J)
“A gorgeous slice of sunny indie pop that mashes together a brash, rocky riff that gives the track an appealing one-two punch” (Scenestr)
“Lyrics you don’t expect from artists so young. Cedarsmoke will be a band to watch.” (4ZZZ)
About this track...
This punk-rock-ballad opens with keys and the husky vocals of Cloumassis before diving into the almost comical, contrasting chorus with bright synths, big band hits and the catchy lyrics such as, "Love hurts, yeah that's what I heard".
