We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Pacific Radio’s new music video for their song “Smile” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Pretty, but Killing Me, which is scheduled to be released on December 8th. You can purchase the album here.
Joe Robinson of Pacific Radio commented on the song:
‘Smile’ is about the absurdity of false over-optimism, pretending everything is great when the house is in flames. You can’t smile your way through everything dummy.
About the band:
Pacific Radio is a sonic collision of energetic garage rock with LA heartbreak. Its origins can be traced back to when Joe Robinson (singer/guitar) and Joe Stiteler (bass) left LA punk band The Ringers in search of a more dynamic sound and space. The duo grew to a quartet with the addition of Kyle Biane (Gui- tar) and Hyke Shirinian (Drums). Stiteler, Biane and Shirinian created the perfect backdrop for Robinson’s catchy melodies, winning over fans from festivals to dive bars.
After the release of their debut EP, 2017 saw the band hit the road with their wildly charismatic live show. From their home base in LA to Austin to Seattle to Napa’s Bottlerock music festival, the band began building a following show by show, fan by fan.
Between tour dates, the band retreated to the studio with Grammy nominated engineer and producer Eric Weaver, putting the finishing touches on their upcoming full length album Pretty, but Killing Me. They diligently transformed their songs from wild rock show crowd-pleasers into a meticulously crafted record inspired by their heroes.
