Smoke Season

Ask Smoke Season to describe their blend of electronic and psychedelic and they’ll give you three words: “electro dustbowl soul”. Los Angeles-based Gabrielle Wortman and Jason Rosen, the duo that comprises Smoke Season, seem to create their own unique genre of music “drawing on big beats and gut-wrenching hooks to create something utterly fascinating” (axs). Their newest single, “Good Days,” released June 2017, “serves up serious summertime vibes” (Nylon) and kicks off a marathon of new music for the duo scheduled for release throughout 2017.

In the past 2 years, Smoke Season has released not only released an EP and a couple singles, but also a short film (Ouroboros) that was featured at 2017 Cannes Film Festival, a handful of music videos, and toured nationwide. They have racked up over 5 million Spotify plays and continue to garner press attention.

Most recently, the duo has risen as a voice for social change: flying to Standing Rock North Dakota to support DAPL protests, and releasing music videos focusing on bullying of LGBTQ youth (“Loose”), support for veterans (“When The Smoke Clears”), and immigration reform (“Emilia”).
