Tank and the Bangas, the New Orleans-bred group whose charismatic Tiny Desk performance took the internet by storm, have cut loose a new song for their growing fanbase to enjoy. Consider “Smoke.Netflix.Chill” ear candy.

The groovy song touches on the dating world’s favorite discussion topic, but puts a sunny spin on it. In addition to “Smoke.Netflix.Chill,” they also dropped a limited edition vinyl record, Live Vibes, released exclusively through Record Store Day. The album was recorded live at Gasa Gasa in New Orleans in 2017 and really speaks to the extent of their live music-making craft.
