We defended pop punk in the 2010s and it’s still thriving in the 2020s. This is evident with acts like Meet Me @ The Altar, Pinkshift, and In The Mourning making waves and showing that this style of music is as great as ever. The Tri-State scene has another band to confide in with Smooth Brain, a fresh act that I think is going to turn a lot of heads soon.
Smooth Brain has released their newest single, “No Pressure”, just last week. With a masterful chorus, an emphatic vocal performance, and tight production, it’s a winning formula for a song to keep coming back to. The band shared: “The song is about true love, as friends, lovers, and family” with the tagline “Better together, forever” channeling the posi side of pop-punk. Hansel Romero of Nightlife handled production and complimented the band’s chops with splendor.
Smooth Brain is set to release their new EP, Friendly Fire, this Summer – check out this group and let us know what you think!
