Bio

Following up from his EP ‘Volcano God Head Explodes’ earlier this year Ben returns with new song leading up to the release of his second full length album ‘Echo Lodge’ (to be released in early 2021).

Volcano God Head Explodes saw Wright Smith embracing new influences, sounds and creative direction. This was met by much acclaim from all over including video game placements, radio rotation around the globe and a feature in The Guardian’s music playlist ‘For Iso Times’.

Landslide (Where We Dance Tonight) comes after the artist spent over seven months in Lockdown. Recorded in Melbourne’s Sound Park and The Aviary with David Turner (Amy Shark, Dan Sultan), Wright Smith channelled the energy of this incensed period of song-writing into some great recording sessions.

Yeah contrary to its title, this track sounds like a bloody ray of sunshine! So warm and radiant. Great to hear from you again.

Ignore that title, the forecast here is bright, gauzy guitar lines with a high chance of charming. Beautiful stuff.
