Smash Williams – Astronaut

Smash Williams

Smash Williams

Music is in the blood of Glaswegian Smash Williams; a brand new project from Gordon Skene (Frightened Rabbit) and Stuart Dougan (French Wives).

Smash Williams is reasonably new onto the music scene, yet the duo have been received praise from some top dogs in the industry. Their latest track ‘Astronaut’ has heartfelt vocals synonymous with their former music lives, but the “folkness” seems to have diminished, and replaced with a happier prowess.

Smash Williams will be making their live debut tomorrow night for Line of Best Fit’s Five Day Forecast at London’s Lexington.

Sounds like: Editors, White Lies, Interpol, Maxïmo Park, BLØSH, Spector
