Tres - Smile On My Face (198x)

This is one of my personal favorites. A very obscure but brilliant band from Sweden, this 7" was the band's solo self-release. The band had written quite a few demos, but none of them ever made it to and official release (sadly). Their demos are amazing, btw. Stay tuned and one of them might pop up here... ;-)

As for this release, there are two solid synth-heavy tracks that I can't seem to get enough of... particularly "Operator", which may be fairly well-known by now. What a killer. Enjoy!

Track List:

A - Smile On My Face
B - Operator

I love this 7", I listen to the b-side practically every day.

The flipside surely is the better track. The then 6-year-old "Funkytown" by Lipps Inc. was an obvious inspiration for this great song.

Thanks for this. 'Smile On My Face' is a catchy one.

Adoro "Operator".
Sou gaúcho, mas essa música me lembra muito Natal. Passei uns dias lá com minha namorada e baixei uma série de músicas synthpop que eu não conhecia pelo wi-fi do hotel, ehehe. Essa foi uma delas. Hoje faz parte de várias músicas irão me acompanhar até o fim da vida.
Parabéns pelo blog!

I'm gaucho (from Brazilian South), but this song reminds me a lot of Natal (northeast). I spent a few days there with my girlfriend and downloaded a series of synthpop songs that I did not know about with the hotel wi-fi, ehehe. That was one of them. Today is part of several songs that will accompany me to the end of life.
Congratulations for the blog!
