Morning Smoke

Morning Smoke is the alt-rock quartet of Milo, Max, Isaac and Chris from Brighton in England.

Morning Smoke - alt-rock from England

Morning Smoke

Heavily reverbed guitars drift across the room, whilst persuasive drum and bass provide a solid and surprisingly forceful back-bone to the tracks, as a shadowy vocals flickers between the sounds. Impressively, given the pulsing lower registers, Morning Smoke is able to avoid the smoky drift from becoming obscured and the listener is left with both a sense of fulfilling rock and simultaneously allowed to relax in the ethereal wafts of sound.


A couple of years behind them Morning Smoke have begun to spike their fan-base with an active stage presence over the summer behind them along with a new single Hunger set for release on the 1st December, which follows-up their EP In Euphoria, which came out earlier this year. If they are able capitalise on live performances over the coming months, 2015 should see a rapid upturn in their visibility.

The combinations of psychedelic shoegaze and pumping rock, gives the quartet an out-put which the listener wants to play again to capture the full effects of the compositions, that theoretically should collapse into a heap of cacophony but don’t as Morning Smoke skilfully melt the two into each other.
