It seems that The Smokes have gone missing at the moment Having said that they have played a few dates in Italy in Feb at a Fashion show in Milan and a couple of other dates , but not concert shows ?
With a new label in 2014 Full Time Hobby it seemed that the ball was rolling for them with with a self titled album and tour and lots of media and with the ladies even telling of their dark time when they thought that they should call it quits
The new album was a different direction from their last two Blues/Folk tinged efforts For the better ? Maybe not , as it`s a good dream pop album and it has a "better " produced feel about it but it doe`snt have a stand out tracks Keyboards and lots of double track vocals seems to make it almost robotic
Over a year later and a supporting tour with P.S.B. and a alt. X Mas album to follow and synth`s back in the background it really seemed that they were finding a new direction and playing old re vamped songs with lots of heavy guitar Would this be the new Smokes path ? It seems so when they played a few gigs towards the end of the year with new tracks that again were heavy With hints of a new album this year , it seems that maybe they had second thoughts
