About Tornados in dallas
Two nights after devastating tornados tore through his hometown of Dallas, Texas, Bomethius wrote and recorded his latest single. A sincere folk ballad with a simple, repetitive structure recalling the early releases of Paul Simon and Leonard Cohen, “Tornados in Dallas” captures the city’s atmosphere of fear, opening with the lines: “Death was knocking on our door / To remind us that he’s waiting.” However, it also celebrates the mystery and power of disasters, which destroy lives even as they bind people together. Bomethius recorded the single in a hallway inside South Side on Lamar, an historic Dallas landmark.
About The 3rd Album
Sweet Nothings is the third full-length release from Bomethius, the solo project of Dallas-based multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Jonathan Hodges. Without a doubt his strongest and most mature effort to date, Sweet Nothings draws from Hodges’ classical training to explore a range of styles from blues and jazz to minimalism and chamber rock. Echoing the sounds of Andrew Bird, Elliott Smith, and Randy Newman, this mischievous brand of baroque pop channels the frank, existential audits of Hodges’ alter-ego, a disenchanted young man plagued by alienation and shame.
