The Smith Street Band are an indie punk outfit from Melbourne whose latest song ‘Sunshine and Technology’ is finally seeing them get the love they deserve.
The opening fast paced vocals are something that I haven’t heard in the Aussie music scene lately, and is nice to hear again. ‘Sunshine and Technology’ has that raw punk attitude but is backed up by more than brute noise and banging. Instead it interlaces these jangly and searing indie guitar sounds with some deep and at times all too true vocals. In many ways, from their attitude, the fast vocals and scorching riffs, The Smith Street Band really remind me of the Living End – not a bad thing by any means.
A cool band, with message and intent and the musical skills to boot, ‘Sunshine and Technology’ is awesome Aussie rock.
