“A stunning post-punk-esque single” AAA Backstage [about ‘Let The Wind Blow]

“Brisbane 5 piece Cedarsmoke brings back a sound kind of reminiscent of Children Collide”

Cedarsmoke have just released their new alt-rock single Pure Heroin where they mixed rom-coms and punk-rock together in an ode to the tragic life of Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen.

Now to pair with it, Cedarsmoke are dropping their very first music video – an explosion of colourful, psychedelic animation that explores the themes and lyrics of the track. Watch Pure Heroin here.

Made by the animator of Mindfuck Studios who goes by the name of Trippiestef, the illustrations help push this bittersweet and sombre story forward that at the same time is contradicted by the upbeat energy. 

As Pure Heroin is littered with historical and pop-cultural references, there are numerous iconic figures and taboo moments that are animated alongside to help poetically sum up this gloomy romantic tragedy comprised of love, drugs, murder and suicide. 

Cedarsmoke will be launching this new single on the 13th of December at Brisbane’s Tomcat. More details can be found below.


Single Launch
December 13 – Tomcat, Brisbane.
w/ The Belladonnas, Leichardt, Ghost Contest and Jordan Merrick
