Smashing Pumpkins, ‘The Celestials’ – Best Rock Songs of 2012
Billy Corgan is the only remaining original member of the Smashing Pumpkins, but that doesn’t mean the band can’t still crank out challenging and enticing music. Beginning with an orchestral part reminiscent of the Pumpkins classic ‘Disarm,’ the band’s new track ‘The Celestials’ is certain to hit Smashing Pumpkins fans at their very core.
‘The Celestials’ successfully acts as a time machine traveling back into the ’90s, harnessing raw power through simplicity and atmosphere. The grunge/alternative era may have passed, but the Smashing Pumpkins’ new single is essential listening in 2012.
