On October 21, Seattle’s Smokey Brights will release their new album Hot Candy via Freakout Records. The quintet, lead by wife and husband Kim West and Ryan Devlin, holed up on Sauvie Island (the wonderful land of Portland summer swimming) at the end of last year to record the LP. With the album announcement, the band shared Hot Candy’s lead single “In Demand” this week.
Smokey Brights “In Demand” is a fitting track from a band based out of Amazon’s 2016 headquarters. The band shared the following about the track:
There are a lot of ugly facets to getting what we want as consumers, and, even though most of us are aware of them, we rarely piece them all together. It’s a lot to juggle mentally, and, when you get down to it, it’s an awful lot of human suffering on tap when you order your underwear via Amazon Prime. Again, interesting times.
