Airy and breathy vocals seep into the mind intoxicating it with a pairing that goes beyond that which is generic and highly antticpated. Together this incredible duo works to build a foundation for the track that is unmatched by any traditional duet. Initially, the musical instrumentation that greets your listening mind is quaint and simple in its expression. However, as the baseline kicks in a jolt of energy rushes through you allowing you to feel the direction “Sweetest Thing” is headed. With the progression of each of the musical components, it becomes increasingly clear that Smoke Season has lived up to the name given to this track, it truly is sweet! At times you feel flooded by the lushly layered sounds that so effortless support the songs expressive behavior. Then suddenly you may feel more reserved like you are an observer of the spectacular experience that is the “Sweetest Thing”
“Smoke Season lives by one rule: normal is fucking boring. Gabby Bianco considers herself a mad scientist, with a passion for tinkering with both the analog and the digital: she has built light setups and stage props for Smoke Season’s music videos and live shows. Jason Rosen expresses his brand of abnormality with fashion and grooves, never letting either stagnate. He laments the limits of menswear, opting to flaunt items from Gabby’s closet because fuck gender stereotypes too. Smoke Season’s sound presents the duo as distinct individuals, adept lovers, and powerhouse performers; to know their art is to truly see them.
It should be noted that their music contains more than just their sunny personalities. They combine two distinct concepts in their art: sensuality and identity, and how each aspect affects them. Seeing them live in concert is a multimedia, and multi-sensory, experience; aside from the hand-built lights and set decor, they craft their synthesizers to set them apart with unique sounds that you will only hear from Smoke Season.”
