The Vapor Caves appear to have no intention of slowing down their upward trajectory as they head into 2020. After a year full of successful buzzwork and a brilliant debut album, the duo is hitting the ground running with an instantly iconic video for Bitch to the Boys, one of my personal favorite cuts from a dynamite-filled project. The video takes things to the extreme, with 80s style oozing throughout the wardrobe, vehicles, props and demeanor of all involved. Thanks to the work of Side Label, the visual direction of Andrew Baird, dance choreography by Misa Soliz, visual effects from Orion Garcia and costuming from Mysidia and Never Over Vintage, plus a handful of cameos from some Austin familiar faces, us viewers have been blessed with what is almost guaranteed to be a viral success. Dig it and dig it good, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for everyone to enjoy!

Holy smokes y’all… I knew that The Vapor Caves were already one of my favorite projects making music these days, but I didn’t know how bad I apparently needed a Yadira Brown rap verse in my life until I heard Bitch to the Boys. Like many of their songs, The Vapor Caves drench this one in an old school aesthetic, employing shades of Neneh Cherry meets Mary Jane Girls for this round. This album doesn’t appear to be a concept album, per se’, but the way that BoomBaptist and Yadira Brown execute their ideas so fully is impressive and inspiring. This one will make some lists at the (rapidly approaching) end of this year… mark my words. Check it out, spread it around, and support your local creatives!
