When we first heard that two Texas titans, Leon Bridges and Khruangbin were teaming up, we were thrilled at would could transpire. While we adore the soulful notes Bridges places on his albums and we can’t get enough of the funky that Khruangbin seeps all over the releases, the two together make for an interesting combo. With their new collaborative E.P. Texas Sun coming in early February, they’ve just dropped a new song, and “C-Side” has all the funk and soul you can handle.
All of the funky notations from Khruangbin’s music can be found here, while Bridges peppers it with soulful vocals. There’s plenty of movement here, as the song thumps and bumps along with a vibe that’s on another level. Almost like a sticky feeling you get from leaning against the bar in a dive, the funky tones are doing their own thing. Then Leon Bridges hovers above with those buttery vocals and together they bring the sound home with ease.
The song can be streamed above or on all streaming sites. Texas Sun is available for preorder directly from Dead Oceans before it gets released on February 07. Khruangbin does not have any scheduled tour dates at this time. Leon Bridges will be on tour from April 24 in Virginia Beach, VA at Veterans United Home Loan Amphitheater until August 24 in Los Angeles, CA at Banc of California Stadium. His complete tour dates can be accessed here.
