From heartfelt harmonies to tranquil flirtations, Seattle’s Smokey Brights drop by the KEXP live room to unveil a decadent collection of tracks from their new rhythmically red rummed release, Taste for Blood. Duo vocalists Ryan Devlin and Kim West produce hypnotic results - tender chants that sound like they are coming from misty mountains in the far away horizon, flowing with the chilling breeze. Rich floating guitars, soft white powder drums and seductive reverbs are the hazy narcotics of tracks such as "Baby Marmalade" or the 70’s synth influenced "Catacomb". Cleanse your palate with this tasty set by these local favorites, chock-full of both chocolate & awesome sauce.
