Gentle J release surreal video for "Smoking"

Jordan Thomas just had a rough day on "Smoking." The desert locale is a curious setting for Thomas, the main songwriter of Gentle J, and his bandmates to give their ode to the New Hollywood seventies movement with a grubby cinematic flair. The resplendent guitar arpeggios of the track give a faint glimmer of hope for Thomas, transforming an otherwise grim outcome with an impressionistic, even transporting form. Just like the scene that replays in Thomas's journey, "Smoking" possesses a dazzling hook that will also linger in your mind for days. Juan Rodríguez
