Video: Ural Thomas & The Pain – “Smile”

As tremolo-filled guitar rocks softly back and forth, Ural tells us a heartfelt story about taking some melancholy kids under his wing. Ural’s voice grows louder as he begins belting some uplifting lyrics in his happy-go-lucky singing style, and a piano flies into an airy solo to give this song some real cheer. Check it out!
