‘Smoke Up’ by Sweet Sweet Moon (aka, as his PR rather wonderfully refers to him, “onepalband” Matthias Frey) is in the curious position of being a song I’d very much like to tell people about, but don’t have a great deal to actually say with regards to it. I mean, I can tell you that it’s an upbeat folk-pop gem, it stays just the right side of twee to sound joyous but not cloying and that it could be the soundtrack to morally ambivalent teens joyriding in a convertible. Also, Matthias appears to be a boat captain. Would that be enough? It’ll have to be.
