The new EP follows the release of their last collaborative project, Texas Sun. This EP continues that journey, and “B-Side is the perfect example of that. The chilling tune sees Leon Bridges’ soulful vocals accompanying Khruangbin’s deep funk perfectly. The Philip Anderman-directed video for “B-Side” follows Leon Bridges as he wanders through a Western landscape.
“It’s like a short story… And it leaves room to continue having these stories together,” Khruangbin singer Laura Lee explains of Texas Moon. “It’s not Khruangbin, it’s not Leon, it’s this world we have created together.”
Watch the video for “B-Side” below.
Texas Moon contrasts Texas Sun entirely.
“Without joy, there can be no real perspective on sorrow,” the artists explain of the EP. “Without sunlight, all this rain keeps things from growing. How can you have the sun without the moon?”

About Texas Sun:
Texas Sun truly made waves upon its release. The easy-going four-song collection is a perfect collaboration between the artists. It’s full of slick guitar riffs and powerful instrumental lines that allow Leon Bridges’ smooth vocal lines to take the lead.
“We try not to have too much of an intention, because it gets in the way of what the music wants to do,” Khruangbin bassist Laura lee explains. “If you just let the music do what it’s supposed to do, it will reveal itself. We tried to take that same approach with Leon. For us, it was opening up our world to have another person in it. But all of it feels like Texas to me.”
Texas Moon will channel some of that same sound.
