TVD Video Premiere: Bantam Foxes, “(I Wanna Move To) Texas”

TVD is proud to present another exclusive world premiere video. The tune is the single off Bantam Foxes’ new EP, “Loser.” It drops on October 30, 2015. The band will also being playing that day at the Voodoo Music Experience and opening for Desaparecidos, Conor Oberst’s band, at the Republic on November 3.

“Loser” is their follow-up to “Give Us a Raise,” which was released this past April. Recorded over the same sweaty New Orleans weekend as its more poppy predecessor, “Loser” dives into darker territory.

Tracks like the ‘70s-esque, riff-heavy “Rip” and set-closer-slash-death-march “Left for Dead” show that the band isn’t all simple melody and garage-pop polish.

Remnants of that polish are still here though. Opening track “(I Wanna Move To) Texas” bounces and shuffles along making you wonder if crashing your Jeep on a deserted highway could really be all that bad, while the major-minor shifts of “Secondhand Smoke” pull back and forth like a schoolyard game of tug-of-war.

Bantam Foxes is on tour this fall. Dates are here.
