Howdy Gals and KUTX Present: Good Looks Album Release Show with Van Mary


The Austin, Texas rock quartet Good Looks announce their electric new album Lived Here For A While, out June 7th via Keeled Scales, and share its lead single/video, “If It’s Gone.” The follow-up to Good Looks’ critically acclaimed 2022 debut Bummer Year, Lived Here For A While trades the Americana sound that colored in the lines of their debut for clanging post-punk guitars and expansive indie rock. The album was tracked at Texas’ Dandy Sounds with producer/engineer Dan Duszynski (of Loma and Cross Record). Frontman Tyler Jordan’s primary focus on Lived Here For A While is dissecting relationships of all kinds: familial, platonic, creative, and romantic. His songs explore how they can crumble irrevocably but also how those partnerships can be centering, hopeful, and exciting. 


Lyrically, the songs on this album are healing meditations on family dysfunction, new relationships, and how a home can become unrecognizable.  However, lead single “If It’s Gone” is the only track explicitly about heartbreak, which boasts a tangible grace that softens any bitterness. “I went through a breakup on day one of the pandemic,” explains Jordan. “‘ If It's Gone’ kind of opened up the floodgates, and a lot of the other songs on this record were written afterward, so it feels really fitting that this is the first song on the record.  I'm kinda hoping I don't have to write any more break up songs, and if this is the last one I ever write, I'd be ok with it.  I feel really proud of this one.”On the soaring track, Jordan sings, “I hope you find true love, and money, many orgasms and fame / And if you’re somehow still unhappy find somebody else to blame,” subverting the angrier tropes of the genre. The frenetic animated video for “If It’s Gone” was directed by Callum Scott-Dyson
