the first thing you think of when you hear the songs of dallas singer songwriter conner youngblood is this guy. but his soft lilting falsetto aside, youngblood’s “voice” comes off like a dream pop ray of sunshine. These two new songs showcase a couple sides of the Yale student’s music. “Monsters” starts out with some warm lilting washes of keyboards before a menacing yet seductive synth line kicks in to give the song some punch on top of a pretty cool banjo riff. “Girl Hair” is all soft and tender and pastoral and floats along like little fluffy clouds of acoustica. It’s gorgeous. Comparisons? Anyone remember A.R. Kane?
