The upcoming debut release from Austin duo Beth // James, All In Life, combines a shimmering mix of modern folk, mindful pop, and Americana charm. The EP taps into the soul of a rhythmic back and forth between two distinct voices blending into one. All In Life, recorded at Rattle Trap Audio with Brian Douglas Phillips (David Ramirez, Rob Baird) is due out on April 28. Band members Jordan James Burchill and Mikaela Beth Kahn wrote “Lion Eyes” after a friend lost his identity from a new relationship. The song takes place in a smoky, dimly lit bar with a girl sipping a cocktail as she picks out a man to prey on. The staccato cadence of their vocals combines with the drama of a slide guitar to emphasize an almost semi-Western feel. Seamless harmonies dance under a sweltering sun to bring the story to life.
