Duo SUBTLE SMILES takes its influences from Sylvan Esso, Thievery Corporation, and Cocteau Twins, with elements of house music, down tempo, and drum & bass.
Vocalist/lyricist Marley Rae creates lush layers, soaring perfectly over producer Brian Frederick's hook-filled songs.
Listen to their beautiful debut album "Significant Other" grab a copy on digital, & cassette.
The Deli Magazine, Los Angeles
"...a richly textured sound that beams with scintillating intensity."
The Music Mermaid
"...a buzzy ambient effort that both thumps and sparkles..."
"[Subtle Smiles] sounds like a chandelier of clear glass bottles that sways gently as you pass it."
