It was so wonderful to jump back into local music after taking a little break for the holiday! This week brought us an exciting new project from soul-pop singer Larry Gee called Cabus and a new single from Dallas band Chancy. After years of mentoring artists, singer-songwriter Brianna Ruelas released her own debut single. We also heard songs from Arlington band Phantomelo, Frisco pop artist Vanalika, and so much more.
Check out the full playlist below this week’s show highlights!
(Warning: the songs below may contain explicit language.)
The upcoming debut EP from Larry Gee’s new project, Cabus, is a psychological thriller named Psycho and was co-written and produced with Caleb Turman (Forever The Sickest Kids), and Grant Thompson (Drugstore Cowboy). With lyrics like “Creep you like a ghost/tip towing through home/I don’t want to wake you,” the super-catchy (and deliciously intense) lead single “Call” seems to fit the theme.
Dallas band Overshare has grown from a duo to a full four-piece band! “Prison” is the first release that features all four members and the song is all about feeling trapped by the love of others.
Phantomelo consistently delivers stellar songs and visuals and “Space Prom” is no exception. The band’s last video featured a trash hurricane, AND THIS ONE HAS PUPPETS!!! (And a puppet murderer… but I won’t spoil the ending.)
