Say You’re Mine has just floored everyone here at Triple M” – Home grown Triple M
“Say You’re Mine is an unfathomably lucrative slathering of chunky riffs and smoky vocals; it’s a slow burner but more in that it kicks off at 11 and creeps its way to 15.”
– Blunt Magazine
Smoking Martha have been burning through venues with their crushing live show since their first EP in 2014. Born of sultry songstress Tasha D and guitarist Mick Broome’s combined love of raw rock n’ roll, the band made a start in 2012 with the union of likeminded musicians Az Stonely (guitar), Matty Mulheran (bass) and Jordy Poynter (drums) who brought out the bands tough yet addictive sound and helped forge their explosive live show. Since forming Smoking Martha have gathered a substantial cult-like following around the country as a result of relentless touring both as headliners and alongside acts such as Everclear (USA), Prophets Of Addiction (USA), Uriah Heep (UK), Seether (SA) and Cherie Currie (The Runaways) and Thunder (UK).
Since releasing singles “Say You’re Mine” and “What’s Her Name?”, the band have put the finishing touches on their debut album In Deep. Recorded at Loose Stone Studios with Matthew Bartlem (Matt Corby, Dead Letter Circus) in the producer’s chair, it perfectly encapsulates the bands heavy hitting, but versatile sound. Softer tracks like “Baby Let Me Go” showcase the band’s ability to go from chugging riffs of previous song “One Night” to a song led by Tasha D’s huge vocal range layered with strings and a delicate acoustic guitar. The band have made a record that cements their place in the Australian heavy rock scene.
May 19 sees the release of “In Deep” the bands debut album and they are celebrating with the launch party at The Zoo on 26th May. Joining them are The Dead Love (Syd), The Flame Fields and Citizen John. An unforgettable lineup – It’s a must see !!
