RaleighCanadian four-piece RALEIGH released their latest album, the acclaimed Powerhouse Bloom last year, and are now ready to charm UK listeners with their sumptuous new video for the album single Smoke In Our Eyes, out now via ⌘X Productions.
Featuring Broken Social Scene’s Brendan Canning on additional guitar, Smoke In Our Eyes is an evocative slice of psychedelic indie rock. Flowing with luscious male/female harmonies and layers of drifting cello and shimmering guitar, RALEIGH have created a rich swirling soundscape. As twinkling hooks are interwoven with trippy beats and steady bass lines, an ethereal splendour oozes from this captivating sonic delight, with a sound that could be compared favourably to the likes of Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Bombay Bicycle Club.
Formed when Clea Anaïs was drawn to Brock Geiger’s voice at a festival in a botanical gardens in Calgary, RALEIGH have now evolved to their current four piece line up with the addition of Will Maclellan and Matt Doherty. Having previously wowed crowds at Islington’s Union Chapel, as well as picking up support slots with Dan Mangan and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, the band are now set to return to the UK for The Great Escape festival next month; and, with their gripping, atmospheric sound, they’re sure to entice many new fans.
