The week has been cold and icy, but the jams coming out of NTX are new and hot! (Apologies for that. A little stir-crazy over here.) This week, we heard an anthem about growing up from Denton artist BB Bean, a gentle love song about a gentleman from country songstress Elaina Kay, and a new indie pop track from Dallas project Raging Bunch. We also revisited the new song from FIT and listened back to the feel-good track “Delifino” from Pretty Boy Aaron and Bruhnice.
You can see the entire playlist after this week’s highlights, and if you are an artist from North Texas, submit your music here.
“The Dance of Instead” is both an anthem about growing up and a tale about unrequited love for a close, lifelong friend. Watch for BB Bean to drop their debut EP, Sweet Bitterness, in May.
Kay expresses tender wonder and appreciation for the gentleman in this slow and steamy love song.
Artist Jayson Bunch heads up this Dallas-based project that recently released the album Good Guys Bad Boys. “Angel” will find you bobbing your head while listening to a story of new love.
