Smoke Rings

Smoke Rings came to life during a (seriously) cold, cold, Canadian winter when Shane (Vocals/Guitar) and Lauren (Keyboard/Percussion) laid down some songs on a computer sitting dangerously close to a heater. The pair brought their tunes home to Australia, went to a rehearsal room with old friends Jon Wright (Guitar) and Elliott Weston (Bass), and after swiping right found now lifetime compadre Liam Gough (Drums).

Their sound, described as a unique take on 90s Britpop, took hold quickly, and soon they were recording tracks with in-demand producer/mixer/engineer Anna Laverty (Peep Tempel/Courtney Barnett) before last year releasing their debut record featuring debut single “Rose Coloured Glasses”. Their “raw, yet friendly” sound earned them accolades as a breakout band to watch out for with the single featuring on both Richard Kingsmill/Home and Hosed segments, key community radio nationwide, and rotation on Double J.
