Collie Buddz joins Reggae band Stick Figure on "Smokin' Love"
Roots Reggae/Dub band Stick Figure have teamed up with Collie Buddz for what could been a Summer-song-of-the-year contender, “Smokin’ Love." Debuting on Indie Shuffle earlier today, the track opens with swirling piano chords and catchy lyrics, and features the band’s signature dub sound throughout.
The song 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, I wanna-wanna smoke a little spliff with you / Lord knows I’m not a fool, I’m crazy for you.”
It’s been nearly two years since Stick Figure’s previous release, their album Burial Ground. Like Stick Figure’s other recordings, “Smokin’ Love” was recorded 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.
