Hailing from Houston is singer-songwriter (and “anti-folk” artist) Adam Bricks, whose sophomore full-length, Relations arrives May 6. We are very happy to already be down with the anti-folk sentiment, so let’s proceed directly to a premiere of ace album track “When You Smile.” Check it out:

Bricks commented, on the track, “I wrote it after watching the movie Blue is The Warmest Color. I think its about having feelings and not knowing what to do with them.”

The backstory: From the NYC anti-folk scene to Houston’s tight knit growing music community, Bricks is known for his intense story based songwriting. Since his first release, “Clock Crash EP”, in 2011 he has played throughout the east coast as well as in his home state of Texas. His upcoming Relations LP is out May 6th and more personal record than ever before. It’s a record about relations between lovers, friends, and people in general. There are darker songs like “Sad Song” and lighter ones like “Something Real” but they all tie into different ways “I feel towards people,” Bricks explains. “It’s Indie Rock with some Alt Folk thrown in.”
