Hey Cowboy

Sandy Cheeks

Texas Platters

Named for the dome-dwelling SpongeBob SquarePants squirrel, Hey Cowboy finds a similarly resonant framework on their second EP. In three spacious tracks, the formerly Denton-based trio channels Warpaint's haunting indie rock immersion. "Cherry Jerry Citrus" draws out crystalline dream-pop vox, blooming into mellow group melody. Finale "Houses" putters out on otherworldly synth chirps, ending small like an inside joke.
