Smoke Screen – 2016

2016 was a relatively understated year for us release-wise, as our only release was the 2 track “Gasso” EP at the very end of the year. The EP featured RA Washington and Broken Keys produced versions of the song ‘Gasso’. We did however play a good amount of Smoke Screen and Smoke Noises shows throughout the year. This highlight clip features the Broken Keys produced ‘Gasso’.

Smoke Screen – 2013

2013 was a little bit of a departure from previous years. We joined forces with indie label Alloy-X at the beginning of the year and released the “Turquoise” EP produced by Connor Musarra. We released the stand alone Smoke Screen single ‘You Gets No Love’ produced by Swarthy Soul aka Walter-1dr and the song/video ‘Backwards Logic’ with Broccoli Samurai. What was originally just a one off collaboration with Ghost Noises from the Alloy-X Vol. 1 Compilation (the song ‘Oops All Berries’) turned into a full fledged group for the next few years. We released 2 Music Videos for ‘2000 Pounds’ (by Turnstyle Films) and ‘Snakes On A Plane’, both from the full length “Smoke Noises” LP which was released at the end of the year. This clip features ‘You Gets No Love’.
