Recipe for immaculate Wednesday morning vibes: make yourself a fresh cup of coffee and hit play on the laid-back new tune “Smoke of a Train” from RHNO.
Composed of two Brooklyn based friends Arjun Viswanathan and Kostas Papadopoulos, RHNO aims to be the next Unknown Mortal Orchestra or Mac Demarco.
“Smoke of a Train” really feels like a warm hug or that contented sigh you let out after the first sip of a hot drink. Meandering, vintage treated vocals over hazy guitar chords greet us upon entry. RHNO continues to layer in additional plucky guitar riffs, creating a pleasing chorus of strings. There are muted drums and a bass guitar in the background, but RHNO lets the vocals and guitar dominate to create a warm halo around the track.
If you’re digging this tune, RHNO promised us several more singles in the next few months, so keep your eyes peeled. In the meantime, we highly recommend you check out “Smoke of a train” using the link below. Enjoy!
