We kicked off 2022 in the best way, with new music out of Fort Worth from Simone Nicole and Sleepy Atlantis, as well as brand new songs out of Dallas from New Ellum, Jacob Metcalf, and Kinsley August. And, Dallas artist Alexandra made her Local Show debut with “Bad Stuff”! Check out the full playlist after this week’s highlights!
Musician Bobby Zanzucchi (Telegraph Canyon, Son of Stan) has revived his project Sleepy Atlantis with “Strangest Place (Strangers Mix),” a song that started as a demo many years ago and was released last October.
Indie pop singer/songwriter Alexandra started her journey in Ohio before relocating to Dallas. Her debut single “Bad Stuff” examines the emotions that inevitably follow the end of a relationship. (Warning: This song contains language that some might find offensive.)
Kinsley August has given us a wonderful love song wrapped in synth and goodness.
