A Certain Smile: Fits & Starts

A Certain Smile: Fits & Starts

A Certain Smile are a highly melodic, fuzzy indie pop band from Portland, OR. With mixed down, slightly distorted vocalsm and plenty of echo and reverb applied to the instrumentation their new album Fits & Starts brings back the heyday of Nineties shoegaze band. Back then the lines between being optimistic or pessimistic where drawn depending on one's mental well-being and economic perspectives.

Their songs deal with the need for change - We Want the World, and those in power are prone to witty sarcasm when they take aim at the Leisure Class. It's not all that serious. They can appreciate a Summer Blonde and show some understanding for the lure of Mexican Coke as well.

A Certain Smile:
Thomas: vocals, guitar
Casey: bass
Zach: guitar, keyboards
Ian: drums
Ryan: drums on track 1 + 4
