2. Wild Moccasins
One listen to 88 92, the band’s latest album, and you’ll understand why Houston has been raving about Wild Moccasins. The five-person band comes together night after night to create a chemistry that showcases pop music with personal, yet honest lyrics. Each song gives you insight into their individual worlds, but still makes room to combine dance, synthpop and rhythmic beats. If you’re familiar with the Free Press Summer Festival that’s held annually in Houston, expect to see these guys on the bill alongside Anamanaguchi, Flatbush Zombies, CHVRCHES and a bunch of other local acts.
