Another stunning track from Smoke Season: “When the Smoke Clears”! It is taken from their new EP “Ourboros” and it packs a punch. “When the Smoke Clears” continues Smoke Season’s dramatic sound and is another stellar track as they continue to grow as a duo. The track starts with a stuttering electronic beat which starts your intrigue, they then take you on a powerful journey as the song builds, rises and falls. Passionate, flowing vocals are layered on top of a funky bass line before being stripped back in the chorus. The gentle change of tempo throughout also keeps you glued.
