Smoke From All The Friction
Smoke From All The Friction
Smoke From All The Friction, based in Raleigh, NC is the newest creation from seasoned local performers Cam Gillette and Ina Carino. It blends traditional and underground cultures to create a fusion of dark pop, rock, and indie electronic that grabs listeners with both a sense of familiarity and a striking curiosity. Inspired by the ideas of tension and friction, they seek to explore what happens when we venture outside ourselves, past the abstract social constructs that create barriers between us. Instead of simply creating a musical performance for mere entertainment, they inspire a deeper, thought-provoking appreciation between the audience and the music itself.

Their hit single, “Cross & Tattoo," is an exploration of the intense connection that can be achieved when two strangers choose to break down the barriers between them and embrace their honest, vulnerable selves despite the conflicts that may arise. C&T plus several other singles regularly air on select local radio stations.

With almost two decades of classical training and a degree from the ECU School of Music, Ina is a multi-talented artist with dozens of performances to her name already. Cam, formerly in Ambits and fresh off the 2017 national tour with indie rock group Rookie of the Year, brings to the group an expertise not only in songwriting and rich vocals, but through keyboard, bass, and guitar - a varied combination often unseen in a single performer. The two very different styles elegantly mesh together to create a beautiful aural artwork, delicately painting a complex harmony in each note and showcasing how two conflicting forces, when embraced, can birth a creation - a truly unique piece of art - unattainable by the two sources on their own. This cutting-edge duo, drawing influence from top artists like Bjork, 30 Seconds to Mars, and Massive Attack, offers captivating vocals and a unique variety of musical styles that will leave you always wanting more. For those thirsting for the latest sounds in music, the merging of these two artists’ talents in all their glory will not disappoint.
