Third Smoke are group of multi-instrumentalists that deliver a performance of raucous gang vocals and sweat combined with the fluid swapping of instruments throughout. Expect a live show built on controlled mayhem and powerful vocal interplay.
On the back of a busy 2016 including supporting Ham Sandwich, Glen Hansard and the Minutes, the summer of 2016 saw Third Smoke return to Longitude and Electric Picnic, whilst also appearing at Sea Sessions, Indiependence, Vantastival and more.
A rainy weekend in March was spent shooting up in the depths of the Dublin Mountains. All whilst navigating the tail end of storm Ewan – which was set on busting both heads and camera equipment alike!
“Maybe In Time” is a song written and demoed over the course of three years. It is a song about finding love and the search for meaning behind the changes that the passage of time brings to our experience of reality.
Recorded with Karl Odlum (The Frames, Ham Sandwich, Kila) and Joseph Edwards (Elephant, We the Oceanographers, Just Mustard).
Video shot and directed by Nathan Barlow.
Third Smoke play Groove Festival in Bray on August 19th
“Dundalk-based indie-folk band Third Smoke have been developing their multi-vocal style on once-off singles and ‘Maybe In Time’ is another fine step in the right direction of the power-in-numbers style.” Nialler9
“Excellent new Irish music from Third Smoke – Their brand new single ‘Man Made Fire’ is an epic salvo from one of our most interesting bands.” Ed Smith, Today FM.
“…whatever genius binds Third Smoke. The Dundalk band are deservedly on the rise and their combination of Fleet Foxes-esque harmonies, Beatles-inspired melodies and deft playing is enough to ensure smooth ride. Watch this space” Phil Udell, State.ie
