Welcome to the Monday Music Discovery playlist, where 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, there’s new music by Kodos, Gloom Cruise, Golden Ones, and Rachel Bachman. If you’re interested in having your music video or new single highlighted, connect here.

We’re Running Out by Kodos

Artist Statement: This was the first song we ever wrote to completion as a group. The lyrics are mixed between being about a girl I was dating at the time and life not going necessarily how I wanted it to. I had just graduated college and was introduced to the reality of having a 9-5 job. My girlfriend at the time was very supportive and loving but was going through her own issues and wouldn’t let me in enough to help – so some lines in the song are about her and that situation, and some about the doldrums of adult living. The sound of the song ended up taking on a Beach Fossils / Chastity Belt kinda vibe which was cool to see because we didn’t know what would come out of us creating music – or what it would sound like.

Go Away by Gloom Cruise

Artist Statement: First song I made as Gloom Cruise, written and recorded in my bedroom.

Ain’t Nothin Better by Golden Ones

Artist Statement: “Ain’t Nothin Better” is the first single just released 2/16 off our debut EP, “Hot Lunch.” (Release date TBA.) We had a lot of fun filming this glittery, pink music video and we hope everyone enjoys it! Follow us on social media to stay up-to-date on future releases.

Time Killer by Rachel Bachman and the Better News Bears
