This week brought us new music out of Fort Worth from The March Divide, a new reggae tune out of Arlington from Idoljob, and a song about sadness out of Dallas from After A Night Of Unsettling Dreams. We also listened back to “Cry No More”, the new song from Tears, and the upbeat tale of “Two Best Friends” from Denton artist BB Bean. On a super exciting note, this week also brings us the premiere of a brand new video from Dallas artist Sarah Johnson. Check out “Fire” (which Johnson edited herself!) in the highlights below.
You can see the entire playlist after this week’s highlights, and if you are an artist from North Texas, submit your music here.
Sarah Johnson *Video Premiere*
Sarah Johnson is part singer-songwriter, part fine artist, and all talent. Her new single, “Fire”, is the follow-up to February’s “Look What You’ve Done”. While the latter is an upbeat number that tells the story of being infatuated by love, “Fire” is a ballad that mourns the end of a relationship filled with heartache, but ends with our heroine optimistic and hopeful for new beginnings.
“A Day Without” is about vices and what it’s like to go a day without yours. The genre-bending duo recorded the song at The Kitchen Studios in Dallas and the band’s new album, A Trip To The Moon, will be released on April 22nd.
“San Pedro’ is the latest release from artist Lulio Guevara, the force behind the project After A Night Of Unsettling Dreams. The song is midtempo and has a calming effect- even though the lyrics describe how revisiting certain places can cause you to relive a loss or heartbreak. This juxtaposition continues in the video for the song, where the heartfelt lyrics are superimposed on top of tranquil beach scenes.
