Bounce to the Spacey Punk Rock SMIRK ‘Material’

Hey, have y’all heard the new record from SMIRK? As of last week, Material is out on digital via Feel it Records, with the vinyl shipping out in early December — get yours here. If you haven’t had the chance to sit down and marinate your soul in Nick Vicario’s noise punk waterworld, now’s the time to do it. It’s fast and fun, uplifting and melancholy, firmly rooted in California rock, and floating away in some spaced-out future. “Revenge” feat. Iphigenia Foie makes me feel like an 80s kid who just accomplished her life goal of stepping into their TV. This record is angular and melodic all at the same time. Material is punk like being pissed at the stupid world and laughing at it at the same time. Right now, watch their video for “Souvenir” and listen to the record in full!
