We had lots of new music this week! Denton indie-pop artist BB Bean sent in their new song “Two Best Friends,” we heard “Dark Side” from indie songstress Jordan Makelle, and melodic rapper Reezan shared his song “Show Me” feat. Soha. We also heard “Where To Start,” the debut single from Fort Worth duo, Cotinga. Plus, Electric Tongues grooved into our playlist with “Sweet”, and we experienced regret with The Troumatics’ “Should Have Kissed You.”
Check out the full playlist after this week’s highlights, and if you are an artist from North Texas, submit your music here.
19-year-old Denton indie-pop artist BB Bean has mixed catchy rhythms, fun lyrics, and a bit of humor into their new song, “Two Best Friends”. The single seems poised to experience the same success as their last release, “Bianca Stratford”, which has over 270K streams on Spotify.
“Sweet” is a jazzy, upbeat, and groovy number that is the Dallas band’s first release since May of 2021. Warning: This song will make you dance.
The Fort Worth duo is made up of vocalist Njia Martin and Landon Cabarubio (keys, guitar, synth bass). Martin’s voice is angelic while singing about those unsure moments that occur at the beginning of a relationship in the group’s debut single, “Where To Start”
