Today, Southern California-based roots reggae/dub band Stick Figure release their latest single, “Smokin’ Love,” featuring reggae veteran Collie Buddz, offering a strong contender for “Best Feel-Good Song of the Summer.” “Smokin’ Love” is the first song they’ve released since their 2012 album Burial Ground.
The track “Smokin’ Love” opens with swirling piano chords, catchy lyrics highlighting the band’s signature dub sound. The track details multi-instrumentalist, producer and singer Scott Woodruff’s upbeat narrative of wanting to smoke with the one he loves, highlighted in the lyrics:
“I wanna get high, I wanna get low, come on I wanna smoke little spliff with you / Lord knows I’m not a fool, I’m crazy for you.”
“Smokin’ Love” was recorded the same way as all their songs; in Woodruff’s home studio with each instrument individually recorded and layered in unison to one other. The band has previewed the track through their social media sites and have recently started playing it live. The group will be hitting the road this Summer with Rebelution for their “Count Me In” tour, which also includes Iration and The Green.
