Season 11 of the Bongo Boy TV Series is moving right along! This series has consistently shown itself to be a gem for indie artists, showcasing the music and videos of up-and-coming artists worldwide. Episode 3 of this season premiered in March on Channel 29 in Portland, OR, and has since been played on over 72 TV channels across the country. All the attention this program gets is well-deserved, and this episode is surely proof of that, combining the impressive efforts of modern indie bands from rap to pop styles.
Opening Episode 3 is Kulikovsky and his single Burning Up. This electro-pop number is mysterious and modern, with an accompanying music video full of bold artistic interpretation. Following this is Indigenous Geometry by Antagonista, taking an accessible alt-pop route in production but featuring an avante-garde black-and-white aesthetic in his accompanying video.
The rap skills from artist Dici on his track u.n.i. are compelling from the start. There’s a great flow and rhythm to his delivery, and the track has an innate catchiness to it that is rare to come by in a track where rapped verses take precedence over melodic lines. Dwight and Nicole are bluesy and soulful in their track The Next Go Round, with a touch of Americana energy for good measure. The music video for this track is perhaps the most interesting in this episode, creating an all-immersive story of addiction, with a powerful message that is sure to hit home with those whose lives have been touched by this particular struggle.
Estani Frizzell‘s Tell Me Why is a stand-out on this episode. Bringing reggae, soul, and jazz elements to the forefront of the arrangement, this track is thought-provoking and encouraging of introspection, tied together by a staccato melody and layers of vocal harmonies working effortlessly against a strong lead vocal. This is followed by The One That Got Away by The High Plains Drifters, an electronic track with a relatable, familiar hook made fresh by an intriguing video where the girl in question narrates the thoughts of the songwriter.
Destiny by The Fizzgigs is a quintessential example of driving pop-punk, bursting with energy and chemistry visible in their live-performance-style video shoot. And lastly, concluding this episode is Tiffany Skylight with her track Goldthread. A softer complement to the previous track, Tiffany’s vocals are nuanced and delicate against powerful instrumentation and evocative songwriting.
This program always finds a way to highlight truly the finest rising indie artists episode after episode. The quality and care put into the Bongo Boy TV Series are once again as evident as ever, bringing together an excellent collection of deserving musicians into one very visible place. Episode 3 of this season no doubt puts real emphasis on the artists that Bongo Boy Records works with that have a modern, digestible sound – which means these tracks will resonate with many. Each episode of Season 11 keeps pushing the bar higher and higher, and Episode 3 is no doubt an episode to beat early in the season.
