Formed in 2014 in the melting pot of Ladbroke Grove, Smiley & The Underclass bring forth a rebellious call-to-arms with a power, honesty and conviction rarely seen in music in these times.
Infused with the bass-heavy vibrations of Dub music and the deadly concoction of lyrics and guitars reminiscent of The Clash and Bob Dylan, Smiley sings the revolution blues with a rhythm guaranteed to move ideas and dancehalls across the UK! The Underclass are Punky Reggae monsters , with catchy tunes and skanks sliced together with mind-altering garage guitars. Their urgency is real and carries a climate-conscious message powerful enough to awaken all punk rockers and roots rebels in this modern era.
The eponymous debut EP released last year captured the promise of what’s to come from Smiley & The Underclass. They just released their debut album, recorded with the legendary Nick Manasseh(featuring Jamaican musical hero Vin Gordon)
The soundtrack to the revolution is here… TUNE IN NOW!
