Third Smoke present instantly catchy hooks in unexpected ways, much to the delight of those that hear them. Intricate harmonies, a passion for song writing and boyish good looks* set this band apart. Obvious influences include The Beatles, The Dandy Warhols and The Kings of Leon.
HotPress (Jan 2012) -- "When Third Smoke takes to the stage channelling The White Stripes, it‟s like a shot of caffeine. They specialise in plenty of energy and exciting changes of tempo, plus singer Hugh Donlon‟s voice has shades of Johnny Cash. The new single, „People Are Messy‟ is a delight and their cover of Foster The People‟s „Pumped Up Kicks‟ knocks the original into a cocked hat."
Reviews (Debut EP)
HotPress (July 2011)-"Simmering with infectious hand claps, charging percussion and a powerful, grinding vocal courtesy of Hugh Donlon, their toe-tapping whiskey-swilling debut single is hugely impressive stuff."
Culch.ie (February 2012)- "Whichever blues brother frontman Hugh borrowed that pair of lungs from, I hope he never has to give them back. "I‟m making it all up as I go along," he roars in Dog Rough Dancing, to which Culch roars back, "We know and we fucking love it!Dear Jesus, they‟re adorable. You go download! Go download right now!"
