Sleek, efficient, and jittery “egg punk” for those who have dreams (or nightmares) of the office.

Without a Zoom call in sight, it’s an album full of riffs and rhythms as tight as a hole-punch computer card, synths that whir like an overheating server, basses that might remind you of the gurgle of a water cooler, and saxes that scream of those knock-off work drinks.

To evoke some business-speak, Smarts are all about those synergies. Featuring members of Living Eyes, Parsnip, Ausmuteants, and Alien Nosejob, they hone in on the post-Devo approach to world creation and rock’n’roll satire to pick at the scabs of corporate Australia.

Time to call up the stock brokers and shift those shares into and investment in EPM (Egg Punk Music) and AFR (Antifade Records) - I hear they’ll be booming today! -Mitch
