Coming out the gate with some red hot new music ready to go, Smoking Martha hit us with 'Good Girls'.
Fresh from the Brisbane four piece, their new single is the perfect remedy for those fans who have been hanging out for new music from the group. And for those music lovers who are being introduced to Smoking Martha through it, 'Good Girls' is a helluva statement piece.
The release of the single also comes with the announcement of new Smoking Martha tour dates, which will see the band perform a series of Queensland shows this August, September and October.
For 'Good Girls', the band worked with longtime collaborator, engineer Matt Bartlem at Brisbane's Studio Circuit. The song shows off the band's brighter, poppier side; delivering music the only way Smoking Martha know how: electrified and with confidence.
"'Good Girls' is the fun, energetic, poppy side of our music. We have a fast punk background, so there will always be that component within our music. It's a playful take on always being at war with ourselves." Smoking Martha
The return of Smoking Martha follows on from an extended period of touring of their much-praised debut album In Deep, released in 2018. Courting attention both in Australia and internationally, Smoking Martha have toured with the likes of Dallas Frasca, Electric Mary, Everclear and Cherie Currie (The Runaways).
With 'Good Girls', the band kicks off their next cycle of music, with more to be revealed in coming months. For now though, the band revels in this new fire that's been ignited, and can't wait to be back on stages.
"We can't wait to get back on the road again! Our last tour was four weeks through the U.K., which blew our minds. It really gave us a whole new appreciation for our art and we were lucky to have done it before the world went crazy. Now that it's slowly on the mend, we look forward to the wild times ahead."
