It’s been really cool to see folks we’ve featured as our Artists of the Month advance up into official ACL acts. Yesterday we gave a shoutout to our May 2022 AotM Good Looks and today we move onto Urban Heat. This post-punk three-piece first stopped into Studio 1A back in February to swelter listeners with their latest set of sinister, cinematic, synth-driven originals. And by July, when their EP Wellness began making its rounds, we’d named Urban Heat as our Artist of the Month.
Temps may have cooled off a bit since mid-Summer, but Urban Heat has continued to crank things up as they perfect their live performances. If you want to test your fest thermostat in the early afternoon, Urban Heat’ll be playing ACL 3PM this Sunday on the BMI Stage. If you’d prefer to avoid the “City Limits” for Weekend Two and instead enjoy the “City Lights” from the comfort of your home, heat up your Hump Day with the live rendition listed below.
