Smokey Brights is a story of love and pizza. Husband and wife duo Ryan Devlin and Kim West first met slinging pies at a south Seattle restaurant in their early 20s. Devlin, a fixture in the Northwest’s DIY rock scene, and West, an aspiring law student, started writing and recording songs in Devlin’s bedroom during a cash-strapped Christmas as their friendship blossomed into romance. Pulling from their mutual love of 70s rock, vintage synthesizers, thrift store treasures, and early MYV, the pair’s bond permeated their songcraft.
The duo, joined by drummer Nick Krivchenia and bassist Luke Ragnar, create a stoney blend of Northwest rock & roll and razor-sharp disco grooves that Impose Magazine calls “a modern bit of AM radio gold.”
