Your Smith Bad Habit (Japanese Wallpaper rmx)
Today, LA-based artist Your Smith (formerly Caroline Smith) announces her debut Australian tour and reveals a new gorgeous remix of “Bad Habit” (Japanese Wallpaper remix) HERE to celebrate the news.
The remix follows recent remixes by Young & Sick for her single “The Spot” HERE and Absofacto’s “Debbie” remix HERE via Neon Gold Records, the originals first having appeared on Smith’s 2018 debut Bad Habit EP HERE. Your Smith recently wrapped American tour dates with Baum, Violent Femmes, as well as Rhye, her upcoming Australian tour partners.
Minneapolis native Your Smith relocated to Los Angeles in 2016 where she began to find pieces of herself tucked into the folds of LA’s rich musical history. Inspired by the cherished songwriters of her youth, she channeled that nostalgia, writing songs for the part of her that needed more of that feeling. “The Spot’ is the result of that feeling”, Smith writes, “the feeling of the 90s and the warmth and dustiness of the sounds mixed with the exciting evolution of modern music; the carefree vocals and the wholly accepted blur between masculinity and femininity in the music scene.” She continues, “Your Smith is an embodiment of that identity. The blur, the warmth, and the familiarity. The change in name is less of a reinvention and more of an engagement with that part of me. I’m still me. I’m still your Smith.”
