Von Bismark and the whirlwind that is "Moth"

Moth by Von Bismark is a whirlwind of sounds anchored to a deep groove, syncopated lush, lush bass cementing the vocal performance to your brain. Jonathan Smith's voice is self aware, internal, sultry and conflicted. The guitar riffs that almost feel more like radio blips out in space give the whole proggy rock affair a kind of trance like feel. A meditation oh high.

Von Bismark is new project out of Oakland, Calif. produced by Jeff Saltzman (The Killers, Green Day, Two Gallants) and headed by Jonathan Smith, formerly of indie dance outfit The Hundred Days. The band teased out a single, "Rocket Ship" in late 2018.
A recent east bay transplant from SF, Smith discusses how the move affected his sound: “After being in an indie dance rock band for years, touring nationally and overseas,, I decided to refocus on what made me happy as an artist: writing good songs. It was intimidating, but moving to the east bay has made me a better and more honest songwriter.”
The project is expected to start live production summer of 2019.
