Following in the footsteps of Patti Smith and PJ Harvey, Mia Wilson of Brooklyn’s The Bright Smoke has developed that rare skill in which her brooding, slow-cooked shoegazer blues is just barely containing an energy, an emotional force that burns bright just under the surface. Allow us to introduce you, via this exclusive premiere of the video for the band’s new single, Sea Level:
Backing up Mia in The Bright Smoke is Quincy Ledbetter, a guitarist/bassist she met through her previous band The French Exit. The new EP they collaborated on, Virginia Et Al. can be heard and/or purchased on The Bright Smoke’s Bandcamp, or on iTunes. For further stalking, head to thebrightsmoke.com.
