Bio

SMRTS formed in March 2009 and started writing songs and playing shows around Perth. The band's line up consists of two drummers and three guitarists. SMRTS play instrumental songs influenced by surf music, Eastern European folk and French/Japanese pop from late 60s/early 70s. SMRTS have quickly established themselves as a very entertaining live band and have received a lot of airplay on Perth radio RTR FM. Debut album "Sun Sets on a New Tomorrow" was recorded in Perth and mastered in Chicago by Bob Weston. New album "Have Friends and Visit them at Night" out now on vinyl/digital download, followed by a tour of Eastern States in March.
