Big Smile has been taking their time over the years to carefully build a large fanbase around their hometown of Cincinnati, OH. This pop punk band recently released an EP in 2019 and is beginning the process of releasing more music in 2020. Plus, how can you go wrong with midwest pop punk? Take a stroll with us and see what BareBones Ent and Big Smile had to discuss when we (virtually) met up.
BS: How would you best describe your music?
Big Smile: The perfect blend of smooth pop and alt punk with heartfelt lyrics and passionate delivery.
BS: What do you feel it is about your band that fans should check out?
Big Smile: Personally, I love how our subject matter isn’t your basic pop punk subject matter, we try to keep each release unique
BS: Your song “Killdozer” has a strong message in it. What made you want to write about that topic?
Big Smile: The topic means a lot to me having experienced the issue myself and also seeing my friends endure the same hardship. Its heartbreaking and I needed to get it on paper.
BS: How much research does that take to write something with a message such as that?
Big Smile: We did a good amount of research especially before shooting the music video. We definitely wanted to make sure we had the facts straight.
