Kristen Kontrol has unveiled a special orchestrated performance of her track ‘Smoke Rings’. 

Filmed for Pitchfork, this live rendition of one of the stand out tracks from Kristin Kontrol’s acclaimed debut record X-Commincate showcases Kristin’s immense stage presence as performer as well as the emotional weight of ‘Smoke Rings’ itself.

Soaked in reverb and pelted with sharp moments of dominating percussion and centred around Kristin’s ability to convey the lyrical core of the song with single twist of vocal dynamism, the song plays with the light and dark of the music in way that is truly captivating from start to finish.
