PREMIERE: Arthur Yoria Releases New Music Video For “Lagarto”

Moving on into our premiere day, we are heading over for something rather political as we team up with Arthur Yoria for the premiere of his stripped down version of his latest single “Lagarto.”

In the words of Arthur,

“Lagarto is one of the more politically charged tracks on After You. The krux of it is to not let the reptiles get you down; live, learn, love and let’s vote brutality out of existence for fuck’s sake.”

Nomadic Americana musician Arthur Yoria has made a name for himself across the United States and internationally as a one-man band troubadour. Although a Chicago native, Yoria has lived in Austin, Dallas, Brooklyn, California and Colorado. He has toured extensively in Colombia, England and Italy, and has been based in Houston for the past two years. After stints in the Houston-based bands The Jeepneys and Lavendula, Yoria released a solo four-song, self-titled EP in 2001, followed by a five-song EP, “Can You Still Look Adorable” in 2002. He has since released other EPs in English and in Spanish as well as three LPs. His most recent releases include his 2015 single “Ruff Life,” and his 2016 single “Safe.” Yoria’s sound is best described as new wave indie-Americana enhanced by his combination of guitar, vocals, harmonica, beats and keys which gives him the unforgettable sound of a one-man band.

In November 2017, Yoria unveiled his new single, “Wishlist,” from his upcoming record, “After You”, set to be released March 31. Having drawn inspiration from the likes of Cornelius, The Beach Boys and Hank Williams, the record touches on topics such as dealing with depression, making music for a living and then not making music for a living. Although some of the topics may be heavy, Yoria has put a positive spin on his new project as a whole and hopes it will inspire his fans. “Wishlist” delves into the process of an experienced artist getting “out of his own head” and coming to terms with the mental and emotional hardships of being an artist.

Yoria’s album, “After You”, will be released on Splice Records and was recorded at Sugar Hill Studios in Houston. The album was produced by Kelly Doyle (of Robert Ellis’ band) and engineered by the legendary Steve Christensen, and features Tank Lisenbe on drums, Geoffrey Muller on bass and Will Van Horn on pedal steel. Most of the collaborators on the record are from Robert Ellis’ band, and Yoria proclaims that with the pure chemistry among this group of talented musicians, they could easily become a “wrecking crew” in the Houston music scene.

“Arthur is such a diverse musician. He has released many songs and a full length album in Spanish. It was important to us to showcase his ability to write, sing and connect with his fans in two different languages on his new album ‘After You’. Arthur is a nomad in every since of the word and the fact that he can head south of Texas and simulate his art and his music into the Latino culture meant so much to us at Splice Records,” state Splice Records’ CEO Shaun Brennan.
