Bio

S.J. Smith has spent the last two years away from the live scene, quietly working on new music and exploring areas outside of his regular brand of cruisy indie-rock.

Smith's latest offering, "Shinjuku Love Hotel", is possibly his most sonically audacious work yet. Combining Smith’s darker than usual vocals, hazy guitar tones and a cacophony of squealing sax, the piece is catchy, propulsive and at times pleasantly chaotic.

Currently, S.J. Smith is rehearsing with a brand new line-up of musicians who will help deliver his debut album to the world and is eagerly awaiting a return to the stage, with a single launch soon to be announced.

"Shinjuku Love Hotel" is the second single from S.J. Smith's upcoming self-released debut album.

What a charming tune. Can totally imagine listening to this at a summer festival with a big smile pasted on my stupid face.

Gonna add my stamp of approval to the chorus of those that have reviewed before me. I felt like I'd already spent time with this beautiful tune despite hearing it for the first time.

Giving me little tingles, S.J! This sounds like summer.
