Obscure Emotion

By: Laurie Gallardo

The sunlit desert scape and eternal sky take you there…

The new video for Houston-based artist Birthday Club‘s single “It’s Not Enough” (the track on today’s Austin Music Minute) premiered earlier this year, and that cascading pop shimmer is a common sonic thread throughout the full-length debut, Obscure Emotion, recorded in a small house studio located in Canyon Lake, TX. Songwriter and producer Stephen Wells, the mind behind the bedroom pop project, is convinced the crystalline blue lake waters helped forge the album’s expansive, multi-layered atmosphere.

Catch a live stream performance by Birthday Club at 7 p.m. (Central) tonight, Wednesday, July 8, on Birthday Club’s Instagram account.
