2014年从SUMMER SONIC音乐节巡演归来的香蕉猴子贝斯手阿悟带着半聋的耳朵又走上了舞台，创造截然不同的音乐，深受日本Old School朋克文化的影响，自我×自由成为Smoking Area的根本基调，鼓手旭阳与吉他手王凯在JAM SESSION中成功中标，开始与阿悟一起并肩作战用噪音与朋克复兴的精神对抗着穷极无聊，清新中透出腐臭的当下。
Since her return from Japan's 2014 Summer Sonic music festival with popular Shanghai group Banana Monkey, bassist and vocalist Awu has discovered new passion and possibilities in Tokyo's music scene. She has since started Smoking Area with guitarist Wanker and drummer Yang. The three members' musical tastes vary drastically. Punk, Noise Rock, Neo Psychedelia, Shoegaze, Ska and more are blended effortlessly in their work. They've created a sound truly their own, delivering frantic energy in their live performances, ranging from tongue-in-cheek absurdity to tortured desperation. One thing is certain, after witnessing a Smoking Area live show, you won't soon forget it.
