Drawing on past pressures & current influences from across the water, A. Smyth sits comfortably in the centre of a triangle with The War On Drugs, Bruce Springsteen & Arcade Fire on each respective corner.
Each new release develops the theme of ‘sacrificing the past and present in order to carve out some future hope’. Second Moon’ will be his fourth release as A. Smyth, & was recorded with producer Darragh Nolan (Asta Kalapa), drummer Dennis Cassidy (Selk) & bassist Dara Higgins (The Jimmy Cake).
