I always love it when my favorite local bands take their game to the next level. Hobosexual did it last year with the awesome conceptual “Hobosexual II,” Brent Amaker is doing it this year with the futuristic sounds of “Android Amaker,” Ra Scion did it last year and this year with the releases “Sickle and the Sword” and “Sharper Tool, Bigger Weapon.”

Now Guerrilla Candy favorites  Smokey Brights are taking it up a notch with their latest single “Viejo.” The song is a bright, warm burst of summer for your ears.

You guys remember Smokey Brights, right? Maybe you remember them from here. Or maybe you remember them from when they played Guerrilla Candy’s Funofficial Bumbershoot Kickoff Party. Or perhaps you remember when I called them “one of the most promising and most underrated bands in Seattle” way back in 2012.

Regardless of whether  you remember them from those instances, you won’t be able to forget the Smokeys after taking a listen to “Viejo.”
