"below the smoke", would like to share with you our album RETROID 2049 inspired by the game METROID and its music. This is original music which is is not strictly retro nor future. Imagine a new METROID game released 25+ years from now and this might be its soundtrack. The result is gritty, alien, and atmospheric. The album would likely be interpreted as several related genres including: dark ambient, stoner rock, industrial and electronic. If the listener might any of the following, then we have accomplished our objective: existential dread, thrill of xenobiological discovery, cosmic horror, glimmers of hope and courage.

100% of any proceeds from Bandcamp purchases go to Girls Who Code. Per their site: "WE'RE ON A MISSION TO CLOSE THE GENDER GAP IN TECH." We felt like Samus Aran would approve of our decision. With the winter holidays approaching, we've found that this record provides a good opportunity for parents to talk to their children about alien horror and space exploration. We offer the following advice to parents: "Sit down this holiday season with your kids at hearth's edge and read the story of Samus Aran. Tell them what you know about the Planet Zebes. Find time to discuss lore about the Chozo and how their history may relate to us even in this modern day."



"below the smoke" is comprised of two friends who live in different cities (Portland, OR and Salt Lake City, UT) who love to collaborate on music and sound at a distance.

Hits: 793
