If you pay attention to the singer songwriter genre of music, you should notice that locally, we have a pretty diverse crowd of artists in that group. Though he is originally from Chicago, Houston transplant Arthur Yoria is definitely one of the different singer songwriters that call Houston home. Known for often singing in two different languages, his latest single "Wishlist" offers a succinct and catchy sound in a couple of seconds over the two-minute mark. The song is the lead single off of his latest full length out next year on Houston's Splice Records, and offers a glimpse into what Yoria will bring to the new album. The video found exclusively here, is just as intriguing as the music that Yoria makes.
The video for the song itself offers a colorful and inventive way to showcase the sound that Yoria has become known for. Catchy, distinctive, and with plenty of creativity, the video's overall look and aesthetic should make anyone who views it excited about what Yoria's new album will sound like. Opening with a guitar in hand like any other solo act, Yoria is quickly adorned with scarves before finding himself lying on the floor covered in as many colors as his music brings to mind when played.
