What’s this? At the end of last year, Swedish duo Smith & Thell released their latest EP, ‘Telephone Wires’. And there’s one song on it that we’ve been coming back to a lot. It’s ‘Santa Barbara’ – perhaps one of the best songs they’ve ever done. Smith & Thell normally excel at the up-tempo rousers, but this is an exceptionally gorgeous slice of downbeat melancholy. And we think you should all check it out, if you’ve not yet heard it.
Written by? Written and produced by the duo themselves. ‘Cos they really are that talented.
What else is on the EP? OMG the fab ‘Forgive Me Friend‘.
