Rising Texas-based Hip-Hop artist Wes Denzel makes his entry on our site with his new single “Zodiac Killer”. The record is an ode to love songs and how people use Zodiac signs as a measure of compatibility when it comes to dating. Wes tackles the subject in a tongue-in-cheek manner and gives his own candid thoughts with relatable and evocative lyrics. The versatile artist sure knows his onions and blends carefully crafted melodic runs with excellent rapping over the soulful guitar-laden backdrop laid before him.
Denzel explains, “I know a lot of people are always using zodiac signs to see if they are compatible with someone or to find “love” ….So I just wanted to play on that theme. I’m kind of questioning the whole thought process of this throughout the verse, but during the hook, I’m really playing into it. Really my way to make an ode to signs of lovemaking, one of my favourite songs.”
The multi-talented artist has opened up for top-tier acts including Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q as well as performing at SXSW and gracing stages throughout Central Texas. In February 2021, following the release of his studio album “I Was Almost Happy,” Wes Denzel was named KUTX’ Artist of the Month.
