Episode 2: Smokey Brights - "Come To Terms"

Monday, November 27th

Smokey Brights swaggered into the studio with a magnificent gold chain-patterened sweatshirt to talk about their new EP Come To Terms, and the lead single of the same name, which we featured in this episode.

The band set up homebase in North Seattle (the actual home of Ryan Devlin and Kim West) and have been holding down the Seattle rock scene since 2010 and show no signs of slowing down.
