The Smilies

Based out of the East Bay area, The Smilies is the brainchild of Trevor McBride, a senior Humanities major at San Francisco State University. Previously, he’s contributed his artwork for Just Friends, Prince Daddy and The Hyena, The Neighborhood, Graduating Life and Open Door Records.  McBride ran the popular label Vaporbabes in 2012, which became a cornerstone of the vaporwave community. Before The Smilies, McBride was heavily active in the scene playing with several other punk bands.
