Rob Smith is not afraid to dip his toes in unknown waters.
Starting out a duo, TSRO made their debut in DJing in New York’s Webster Hall in 2013 before closing the main stage at Vantastival for two years back to back. As the project was fading, Smith decided to take it to the next level and make original music under that name.
“I was really blown away by the sounds bands like Jape or LCD Soundsystem make when you go see them live,” the 34-year old explains. “Even for example when you watch the Talking Heads movie Stop Making Sense today, some of the effects are simple yet timeless in electronic music. I try incorporate bits of that, and bits of what I know having played indie rock for years, into this”.
A prolific era for the Dubliner began when he released TSRO's debut album Northern Lights in September 2016 and followed it up just a month later with the Late Night EP to acclaim.
That Christmas, he released the stand-alone single The Allegiance of Bobby Turbulence and caught the attention of the press and the Dublin International Film Festival, who used the band's material for the promotional campaign throughout the 2017 festival.
Smith released two singles, I Don't See Any Daylight Anymore and Time, in early 2017 to critical acclaim. This was followed up with the recording of the long-awaited second album, titled This Is A Dream, which will be released in September 2017
