This week, Dallas artists came through with a storm of music! Parker Twomey sent in the second single off his upcoming album, All This Life, we heard the new release from Glitter, the latest tune from the Electric Tongues, and a song about feeling alienated from Booker T. Washington High School student Kaatii. Not to be outdone, we heard from Denton band Days of Summer, and Caroline Sears (who was recently featured by KXT for Bandcamp Friday!) chimed in from Rockwall and sent in the song “Honey”.
You can see the entire playlist after this week’s highlights, and if you are an artist from North Texas, submit your music here.
Glitter (formerly known as Glitter Rose) has a new sound and a new batch of songs produced by John Dufilho and Salim Nourallah. “Pretend Love” is a fresh take on disappointing relationships and Dallas artists Remy Reilly and Amy Kathleen (of Dallas band Almost Jaded) star in the super fun, arcade-themed video.
(Warning: this song contains language that some might find offensive.)
Kaatii is only 15 years old and wrote “Superterresterial Humanoid” from the vantage point of an alien dropped into suburbia trying to find its purpose as a way to describe their experience of what it’s like to be a young queer person in today’s world. The song officially releases today in honor of Pride Month and you can catch the Booker T. Washington High School freshman performing on multiple stages at the Dallas Pride Festival tomorrow, June 4th.
Parker Twomey has been on the road as a touring member of Paul Cauthen’s band for the past three years, but that hasn’t stopped him from working on his own music. “Counting Down the Days” is the second release from his upcoming album All This Life, which will be released on July 15th.
