SMOKE THE BEES Short Info

Smoke the Bees is an alternative rock music project launched in Turin, Italy in 2011.

Current line-up
• Lorenzo Rando (guitar, vocals)
• Maze (bass guitar)
• Samir Hadade (drums)

The music
Smoke the Bees’ music combines diverse genres and influences creating an alternative sound with a leading thread. Source of inspiration are artists like Radiohead, Syd Arthur, Sparklehorse, Tom Waits, and the Icelandic music scene. Music is intense, atmospheric, reflective, as well as tuneful, irreverent and catchy. This generates a natural empathy from the first listening, diverging from the local music scene and the Italian music in general.

What does Smoke the Bees mean?
Smoking the bees is the bee-keeping stage where the bee-keeper injects smoke into the hive. Bees get confused because the smoke mixes up the smells preventing the production of the pheromone that informs the bees of the danger caused by someone breaching their hive. This is a modernist metaphor about society’s homogenisation and individual alienation. Bees in fact get lost and let life cheat them, just like us.
