About this Event

In the sonic space between infectious, sticky-sugar pop and moody, melancholic shoegaze lies Smut. Despite what their name may suggest, the Cincinnati OH five-piece’s

sound is anything but dirty. On their upcoming album, How the Light Felt, we find the band taking a fresh approach while paying homage to their fuzzed-out roots. Drawn-out, droney tones create the lush and atmospheric backdrop upon which the band is posed. Piercing through the ambiance are glistening melodies and glittery pop hooks. With a bit of distortion and a touch of delay, the band puts to rest the tired tropes of pop.

After five years as an outfit, the group finally settled into their current lineup a few short seasons ago. In that time, they’ve already conquered national tours with acts Nothing, Swirlies, and Bully. The quintet are so clearly and so strongly in sync, as to not miss a single beat. Soft and strong bass lines laid down by bassist Bell Cenower melt into drummer Harold Bon’s gently driving percussion. Together they craft the smooth, rhythmic undercurrent that flows beneath glimmering guitars and shimmering synths. These sparkling sounds come courtesy of guitarist Andrew Min and guitarist/synthesist Sam Ruschman. Syrupy-sweet vocals spill out of vocalist Tay Roebuck, and dance across the soundscape with ease. In sum, the five are a beautifully dynamic, and incredibly emotionally honest re-envisioning of a pop band.
