The Bright Smoke is a mesmerizing and captivating blues/art rock duo based out of Brooklyn. The duo is comprised of lead singer Mia Wilson and guitarist Quincy Ledbetter. The two create a moody ambiance that fuses together their own style of blues and indie rock that is quite an unforgettable experience. Wilson’s voice is a huskier version and evokes an equivalent spirit of Florence Welch’s.
Wilson says the lead single “Model Citizen” from their upcoming LP, Gross National Happiness, “was inspired by watching a parade of public figures claiming to only want the best for people and lobbying to do immeasurable amounts of harm to vulnerable populations. The sound and tone are upbeat with a tonally bright bridge that contradicts the meaning of the lyrics.”
Gross National Happiness is out July 5.
