New Band Alert: Pecos & The Rooftops

If you can’t tell by now, I LOVE music. I grew up in a house where I was dancing and singing to music before I could properly talk. And I was going to concerts before I even needed a ticket. I have my parents to thank for many of the artists I listen to today. But as I got older, I loved finding my own small artists and introducing others to them. This is what I am doing in this article with the band Pecos & The Rooftops.

              Pecos & The Rooftops is a group of five friends that formed together in Lubbock, Texas. When their first single, “This Damn Song,” came out in 2019, I was automatically drawn to the band’s sound. Although their genre is technically country, there is a lot more rock sound behind them. After having the song on repeat for a couple of months, the band finally released their first -and at the moment only- EP called Red Eye. With only six songs on the EP, I was able to quickly learn all the lyrics. I was amazed at what they had created. There are songs about heartbreak, songs about knowing you love someone you should not, and of course, it has some good party songs. Not only is the EP lyrically great, but the band also writes all their own songs, so you can really tell they come from the heart.

              With a great EP, you have to get your songs out there. And at concerts, Pecos & The Rooftops does just that. I have been fortunate enough to see them live three times, and each time I walked out talking about how great the concert was. I go to a lot of concerts, so I am very critical of them. The first time I saw them was the day before the world shut down, and although I did not know it at the time, I was so lucky to have that experience before going into lockdown. Thankfully since then, I have seen them two other times at socially distanced concerts and each time blows me away from a little more. They know how to interact with the audience, and you can see how good of a time they have on stage. Not only that but, after the concert ends, each band member takes time to go up and meet the fans that have come to see them. I have had a whole conversation with each band member multiple times, and you can tell how thankful they are to do what they do. If you ever have the chance to see them live, I highly recommend going to see them—plus they are all very attractive. Make sure you are on the lookout for their new album that they have been teasing and check out the bands Spotify account here:  https://open.spotify.com/artist/5KbiLoVLLIHM5vZ0RM9WMU?si=WRVUif9qSuKZal…
