Tobias Lund: “Let Me Know” (feat. Phono Magic)

By: Jack Anderson

Everyone’s got their favorite blue-eyed soul artists. And sure, it’s technically a derogatory term, but if you’re after some super blue-eyed soul…like so blue-eyed it’s Scandinavian, then look no further than Austin’s Tobias Lund.

This is the third time we’ve talked up Tobias, and long story short, the keyboardist-singer’s already shown a ton of talent across the soul-pop spectrum. So after a strong sequence of sultry standalone solo and collaborative singles, imagine our delight upon hearing about Tobias Lund’s debut EP, Leap of Faith, out next Thursday.

Lund plays a set Hole in the Wall 10PM that same evening with EP guests Camila Rivers and Phono Magic, plus The VYB Project alongside opener EddieAngel at 9PM and closer Chico Jones at 11PM. And just yesterday Lund lent us the album’s second lead single made in cooperation with Phono Magic, “Let Me Know”. We knew Tobias was smooth, but damn, this one just breathes baby-makin’ magic. Whichever way you lean, this erotic piece of modern R&B is an instant aphrodisiac for aural arousal.

Nick Taylor: “Dead Land Future”

For native residents of cultural music hubs, the locale’s unique opportunities tend to be taken for granted. But for folks from comparatively podunk parts of the country, the prospect of a potentially transformative emigration is too good to pass up. Yeah, you can draw parallels to those poor Okies’ desperate westward flight from The Grapes […]

Street Peach: “Heavy”

If we’ve learned one thing from Destiny’s Child, it’s that vocal groups aren’t always limited to one breakout singer. Even if fate favors one over another in the long run. And that’s kind of lining up with how we see some of the expats from former Austin R&B trio Keeper. See, while Keeper’s Yadira Brown […]
