Monday Music Discovery for July 9, 2018
In the Monday Music Discovery playlist, I feature a mixtape of both new music video videos and singles of all genres of music by local bands in Oklahoma. In this Monday Music Discovery, I have new music by Abbigale Dawn, ExWives, Medisin, and Sophia Massad. If you’re interested in having your music video or new single highlighted, connect here.
Nicotine Kisses by Abbigale Dawn

Artist Statement: Nicotine kisses is a song I wrote about guilty pleasures and bad habits. It’s less than a year old, and the first track you’ll hear on my debut EP (self-titled – Abbigale Dawn). Recording this with the guys (Kyle Reid, Kiel Dehnert, and Johnny Carlton) was such a blast!
Nothing’s Wrong by ExWives
Artist Statement: The subjects behind each of the ExWives songs is based on the stupid things we do in relationships that make no sense or the things we do outside of relationships in order to get in a relationship that also makes no sense. It’s basically all pretty tongue in cheek and is written from a character point of view. “Nothing’s Wrong” was written about how sometimes simply finding a place to eat can snowball into a giant argument for no real reason at all. We’ve all been there, which is why it takes on the “it’s funny because it’s true” characteristic. With lines like “I was in the right lane, I need to go left, but I’m stuck in something I can’t change” and “It takes a village just to pick someplace to be” the scenario becomes pretty obvious and humorous.
For as sarcastic as some of the tunes subject matter can be, all of the production and engineering was very deliberate. Down to purposefully making the vocals sound blown out. I guess that’s what happens when you have 3 producers/engineers all in one band that want to do something they haven’t tried before.
Broke33 by Medisin

Artist Statement: This song is the beginning of a new journey that involves heartbreak, confusion, frustration, and a couple of other emotions. Although his heart was broken many times, he still felt like he was confused as in why he still longs for her to call him again so he can answer again.
Alone at Night by Sophia Massad

Artist Statement: The single features Tristan Todd from Pax on lead guitar, Tyler Sexton with a second guitar part, Chris Anderson on bass, Brock Wilson on drums, and Garrison Brown on the horns, and the song was mixed and mastered by Dustin Ragland.
