Smoke and Mirrors Soundsystem - Second That Emotion (7")

Ships In 3-4 Business Days

Smoke+Mirrors came about when the pandemic took away our ability to play in person, practice and record together. John Roy had no work and was isolated like the majority of his fellow musicians. He wrote tunes, lyrics, arrangements, then recorded them with midi instruments in the office of his shuttered business. He emailed and messaged everyone he knew from his days of touring and live gigs with Gangbusters, OMD, English Beat, Unsteady and more. People trapped at home sent Tracks, wav files, mp3s, even voicemails! John edited all of it together, got it, mixed, mastered and pressed. He’s since gathered players to bring the records to life. His imaginary band started to become real!
