Tokyo-based Australian artist Tex Crick has released his new album Sweet Dreamin’ on Mac’s Record Label. Early singles “Easy Keepers” and “Barefoot Blues” earned acclaim from several media outlets. Now he has revealed the final album preview track “Silly Little Things” alongside an official video shot by friend Luke Casey on the outskirts of Tokyo. Crick’s baritone vocals bare a vintage charm while carrying listeners into the moment. He shares, “It’s like some offbeat lounge act singing in harmony. Like most of my songs, this one is about appreciating those fleeting moments in life. Small pleasures that leave a lasting impression.”
Crick was the first artist signed to Mac DeMarco’s illustrious record label and is thrilled to follow up his acclaimed debut with this poetic, stripped-back collection of piano-led arrangements. In his young career, Crick has already shared stages with Weyes Blood, Kirin J. Callinan, John Carroll Kirby, Connan Mockasin and Iggy Pop.
Sweet Dreamin’ stands on its own, demanding undivided attention while offering a tantalizing glimpse into Crick’s rich artistic universe. Ethereal analog synths blend seamlessly throughout the ambitious new album, casting a warm and enchanting spell that transports the audience to a realm brimming with heightened sensitivity and unadulterated emotion.
