Smoke Chaser – “Big Moody Curve”


Described as an “Americana-flavored tribute to the curse of Highway 17,” “Big Moody Curve” is a new track from Santa Cruz-based band Smoke Chaser, off their new album Alazapul.

Soothing multi-vocal harmonizing accompany driving imagery — turning off the headlights, taking hands off the wheel — and exude a free-spirited, psychedelic appeal into the “get inside,” euphoric vocal. The “come on and take a ride,” temptations are clearly evident, and the track serves as another success from Smoke Chaser, who impressed last year with the single “Highway One.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2023’ Spotify playlist.
