SMILEY & THE UNDERCLASS
Smiley & The Underclass are a punky reggae explosion from London via. Japan, the UK and the Caribbean. Formed in a caravan below a motorway in 2014, they quickly captured the hearts of London's underground music scene with chaotic and incendiary live shows put together in squats and disused venues across the capital.
Releasing their debut album Rebels Out There in 2017, they've spent 2018 smashing up venues from Japan to Europe to the UK, including sold out shows from Tokyo to London and packed out tents at Boomtown and Shambala Festival. Mind-melting guitars collide with razor-sharp lyrics and crushing basslines to move your mind, body and soul. As raw as Slaves but as melodic as The Skints (with a lyrical dose of IDLES-esque dystopia for good measure), the Underclass carry a sound to unite all punk rockers and roots rebels of the modern era.
