“Everybody’s Safe Until…” – [Paris Texas]

We see artists try to mesh the sounds of rock and rap somewhat often, as most are on the prowl for the next hot new sound. As common as it has become, I’m not sure I’ve seen anyone do it quite as effectively as Paris Texas. The difference with PT is that their work feels so unforced. Natural. True to their sound. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure they’ve experimented to get where they’re at now, but man does it seem effortless for them.

“Everybody’s Safe Until…” is their latest track, dropping just a few weeks ago with an accompanying video. Morbidity runs rampant throughout the whole song, something that PT listeners should be used to at this point. That dark undertone and transparency are seemingly what listeners latch onto, and I can’t blame them. It’s almost inviting.

“There’s people tryna kill me – other than me.”

The video is yet another cinematic production that separates PT’s content from most in the industry. Director Noah Lee and producers Ryan Hahn and Janelle Lee need serious applause, as you just simply don’t see visuals like this. The amount of planning, precision, direction, and execution that are packed into a three-minute-and-thirty-nine-second time frame is — for lack of a better word — ridiculous. On top of all that, the creativity and innovation to produce this “trip” can be appreciated by anyone that’s a fan of visual art; illusions, costumes, scene selection, lighting, and more. I don’t want to give away too much about the piece, but if you’re reading this far I demand (not really) that you go and check it out. 390K viewers on YouTube would say the same.

Paris Texas continues to defy the norm in the modern music landscape, and I’m always excited to see what’s next. For now, check out “Everybody’s Safe Until…” on YouTube below!
