Khruangbin and Leon Bridges release their latest collaborative EP, Texas Moon. An extension of the two’s chart-topping four-song Texas Sun journey, Texas Moon is an introspective stroll through the dark. “Without joy, there can be no real perspective on sorrow,” says Khruangbin. “Without sunlight, all this rain keeps things from growing. How can you have the sun without the moon?”
Crediting their mutual home state for inspiration, Texas Moon pensively examines Texas’ musical perception, while paying homage to the marriage of country and R&B that’s become synonymous with the lone star state. Propelled by rolling guitar licks, conga and bongo, lead single 'B-Side' meditates on meeting in a dream and frolics across the nearing contemplative nighttime state with its longing’s joy.
Upon its release, Texas Sun soared to the No. 1 slot on Billboard’s Emerging Artists Chart along with landing the No.1 on spot on “Americana/Folk Albums,” No. 2 on “Vinyl Albums,” No. 4 on “Top Rock Albums” and No. 6 on “Top R&B Albums.” Here in Australia, the EP debuted at #7 on the ARIA singles chart and saw press support from Double J, Purple Sneakers, Monster Children, Bet Magazine, The Music.com.au, among others.
