Smeared Canvas

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

Smeared Canvas is a song performed by Deep Cut.


Smeared Canvas is an energetic pop song. The song starts with an instrumental intro, then a verse sung by both Shiver and Frye. This first verse samples the melody of Treasure Obtained. The second verse is two solo parts, first by Frye, followed by Shiver. The first verse is then repeated. Afterwards, an instrumental bridge is played before looping back to the intro.

This song is played during two missions in Alterna Space Center of the Return of the Mammalians single player campaign in Splatoon 3, first during The Spirit Lifter: Steerage, then immediately followed by The Spirit Lifter: First Class. While the same song is played continuously throughout these two missions, it is worth noting that different percussion instruments are used separately for these missions. The transition to the different instrumentals happens after the player lands onto the latter mission.

Like in many other missions, when the player has been spotted by enemies, an additional percussion track is layered on top of the music.
