If you haven’t been paying attention to what Forged Artifacts in the last few years, it’s high time you get hip to one of the great small indie labels out there. Just yesterday the label shared a song from the forthcoming Bill Waters EP; I must admit that I’m quite smitten. My ears are probably jaded but I think the first single we hear is fairly reminiscent of 60s pop music; the way the harmonies and guitar lines are wrapped around the vocals. Of course, the latter half of the track is intent upon ignoring standard tropes, so you get to hear a little sonic noodling. The Honey Hi cassette tape will drop on March 29th.
While we’re about to settle into Fall (yes, even in Texas), it’s time to break out the easy listening. Bill Waters should be someone on your radar, pulling from an era of pop that carries wistful melodies and promises of sunsets on the horizon. You’ll get a slight bounce from the strumming of the guitar, offset by a sinisterly smooth vocal performance. This song is the first off his debut Humid EP, which will handled by Forged Artifacts.
