TRACK PREMIERE: SMOKESCREENS “USED TO YESTERDAY”

June 14th, 2018 | Listen

L.A. band Smokescreens‘ last album was nicely noisy Flying Nunnery, but this title track to their coming full-length sounds like one of Wire‘s catchiest or the Clean‘s very cleanest—a post-punk pop echo bouncing between two opposite points on the planet, cut down to only its most necessary parts. (Smokescreens were co-founded by Corey Cunningham of Terry Malts, who we interviewed here—if you like one band, you need to check out the other!) Used To Yesterday is out July 13 on Slumberland, and after a few L.A. shows Smokescreens will start a national tour with nicely matched tourmates the Molochs. Full dates below!
