Bio

S. M. Jenkins is a band started by Steve, based on some recordings he was making alone in his house. The style of the music is a bit of a diversion from his other band which is called Step-Panther, which is a loud 3 piece rock band. This band is loud too but kind of more of a mellow and laid back sort of thing that just chugs along. Steve moved to Melbourne and got some really great people to play in the band , Jo Syme of Big Scary on drums, Jimmy Gallagher of Dumb Punts on bass and Shanna Watson who plays for Caitlin Park on guitar, its a really good band and the songs sound good! Everyone’s a winner !

Love the sound of vocals on this track. Something about this is so endearing. It's low-key, a little fuzzy and has a very warm-by-the-fire nature to it. Keen to hear more.

i was a big fan of 'mikrowave' and this has that similar stark appeal that stopped me in my tracks back then. if you like red riders then this might give you the fix you're longing for.

Modern, lo-fi, alt-Australiana. I'm here for it.
