Remix darlings Hotel Garuda have officially entered the wonderful world of original music, and we would hereby like to welcome Smoke Signals to our ears and yours.
The duo, made up of Candle Weather (Aseem Mangaokar) and Manila Killa (Chris Gavino), began working together in January 2014. Their remixes, like that of Lana Del Rey’s Summertime Sadness, Chromeo’s Jealous, and Galantis’Gold Dust, quickly spread their name around the electronic music scene. Take a listen on their Soundcloud and you’ll hear why—they are hyyyyype.
Smoke Signals, their first original single, is now available on Spotify, Apple Music, and iTunes, and it’s already got us wondering what else Hotel Garuda has up their trendy little sleeves. With some cool intergalactic vibes and silky smooth production to match mystical vocals, Smoke Signals may just be your new favorite anytime song. Check it out, and keep an eye on these two for more to come.
