Seattle’s Smokey Brights describes itself as “Fleetwood Psych” on its Facebook page, which seems about right. They’re indebted to the sounds of the ’70s — Fleetwood Mac, sure, but also Pink Floyd and Roxy Music — but as refracted through the lens of the eccentric, hook-heavy pop of contemporary (and similarly backwards-glancing) acts like Arcade Fire and Florence + the Machine. The band is the project of the husband and wife songwriting duo of Ryan Devlin and Kim West, who also trade vocal duties, and their newest EP Come to Terms features a quartet of kaleidoscopic tracks that rush headlong into danceable grooves. Get used to them being stuck in your head for awhile.
