Elite Introduction: SMLH

Elite Introduction: SMLH

SMLH is the solo project of 17 year-old Hillsborough, NC native Sam Higgins. The project began as merely an accumulation of off-kilter 4-track demos that were recorded while he was in seventh grade. However, what was once cathartic regurgitation inspired by middle school goofiness and angst eventually grew into a more developed solo attempt. Influenced heavily by the southern punk rock ethos of North Carolina legends the Flat Duo Jets as well as the hypnotic bedroom stylings of Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox, the nature of SMLH’s output is hard to put a finger on at times; his early 2014 release Singles Vol. 1 features as many nihilistically loud “fake songs” as it does introspective and hazy pop tunes. SMLH’s favorite things are Seinfeld, Cheerwine, ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel, Adidas Sambas, short-scale guitars, and dad jokes. “Neon Visions” is the first track from of an upcoming two song digital release. SMLH is said to be at work on a début full-length record due out in Fall 2014.
