Bio

There's something not to trust about SMILE. They're deceptive.

We're living in a post-dolewave world. The economies up, house prices are soaring, burgers are artisanal yet these guys from Melbourne don't appear to care about property investments. You'd think they'd be a cool breeze, a setting sun, but on their sophomore album, 'Rhythm Method' they're throwing pop hooks, a snare drum jab, a vocal uppercut.

WTF? One starts to wonder if these guys even voted for the Tone Dog! It's fair dinkum UN-OZtralian.

Invest in your future, invest in APP developments, invest in liquid superannuation is what these guys should be doing. Then again maybe they just have. They can't be trusted…

Mesmerizing stuff. Joy Division and Happy Mondays had a baby.
