Following their commanding tracks “Say You’re Mine” and “What’s Her Name?” Smoking Martha step barefoot into the flames with a smoldering new single “Stranger Things”. Coming off their album debut album In Deep, “Stranger Things” the dynamic five piece stay true to their signature hooky riffs and alluring vocals.
Lead vocalist Tasha D describes the new single as a, “dynamic track with 2 songs in one with an explosive ending. It’s a song about our struggles our dreams and desires tying together the overall theme of the album “In deep”– how far we’ve come and how much further we have to go.”
The heavy hitters teamed up with Matthew Bartlem from Loose Stone Studios (Matt Corby, Dead Letter Circus) to create their debut album “In deep” with “Strangers Things” being the final track to end with a bang.
Guitarist Mick Broome describes the recording experience as “…an intense but relaxed vibe. We worked really hard which brought out the best possible takes. We were told to leave our egos at the door and really focus on the music which helped us not get sidetracked by all the other bullshit! We found with enough push we could actually play better than we thought we could. Matt was able to drag out performances that really captured the energy.”
To add to Queensland’s hard rockers success, they prove to be one of a kind scoring international and National supports with, Fuel (USA), Everclear (USA), Prophets Of Addiction (USA), Uriah Heep (UK), Seether (SA) and Cherie Currie (The Runaways). 2017 continues to look incredibly bright for Brisbane’s ambitious rockers.
“Say You’re Mine is an unfathomably lucrative slathering of chunky riffs and smoky vocals; it’s a slow burner but more in that it kicks off at 11 and creeps its way to 15.”
