Dundalk, County Louth
Third Smoke are an Irish indie rock band that build performances around a mixture of raucous gang vocals, dynamic harmonies and the chaotic swapping of instruments by five seamlessly synchronized multi instrumentalists.
Musical influences range from the likes of the Dandy Warhols, Arcade Fire, Talking Heads, Glass Animals and Fleet Foxes and through years of dedicated writing, exploration, format changing and continuous touring they have established a live show that channels a blend of anthemic melody driven indie rock together with powerful vocal interplay above a wall of crafted sound.

“Excellent new Irish music from Third Smoke - Their brand new single 'Man Made Fire' is an epic salvo from one of our most interesting bands.”
Nialler 9, The Irish times. Songs of the week.
Dundalk-based indie-rock band follow up their idiosyncratic season-focused single Ms. Summer Breeze, Third Smoke push their harmonic ways that are reminiscent of Grizzly Bear with a bit more bluesy chain-smoking going on.”
Phill Udell, State.ie
;..whatever genius binds Third Smoke. The Dundalk band are deservedly on the rise and their combination of Fleet Foxes-esque harmonies, Beatles- inspired melodies and deft playing is enough to ensure smooth ride. Watch this space"
