The members of Scenery are local music veterans, previously enlisted in groups like Brazos, Pompeii, and Belaire. If there’s anything that unites those bands, it’s an emphasis on pop hooks, and Scenery follows suit. On its new single “Smoke & Mirrors,” the quintet carves its electro-pop into a sleek vehicle built from snaking guitar lines, synths, and harmonies. It’s a precise and tight song, but it still leaves room for heart-on-sleeve explosiveness.
