Track of the day #415: Blaire – Smiling

Smiling‘ is a buzzing, fuzzy garage come punk come shoegaze track by Australian trio Blaire. With choruses along the lines of a reverb-drenched The Cribs, jangle-pop melodies muffled by haziness and the energy of Britpop it’s a song that’s combined a lot of good things into one. It’s a feel good track as well as a breath of fresh air. Speaking of the track, Blaire’s lead guitarist and vocalist Ben Stagg has said: “‘Smiling is about being really into something, when you know deep down it’s probably killing you”.
