Emerging Adelaide indie pop band The Smile Hooks have just released their debut single “Sinking Ship”. The band formed after Jarrod Prince (guitars/vocals) and Andrew Foulis (drums) departed from punk rock outfit Liberated to join a new project, long-time friend and pop enthusiast, Andy Glover (bass/vocals).
The single opens with crashing guitars and drums before Jarrod steadies the ship with his fresh vocals. The song has that many levels in between the multi-vocal memorable chorus, guitar rambling and solo bouncing bass it’s hard to keep up - but that just makes it even more worth the ride. It’s an ode to the struggles of life and capitalising on everything we’re given.
The song was produced by multi-instrumental wunderkind Ben Green in his home studio and there’s certainly Jarrod and Andrew’s punk rock influence running through the veins of the track - even a touch of The Strokes about it, if you will.
The Adelaide three-piece have been gigging all over the city since 2013, earning a reputation for their high-energy shows and stage invasions from crowd members. If you get the chance to see a gig, then it’s one you certainly won’t want to miss.
