Bree & the Fellas Fight Through a Dark Age With Infectious Grooves
By Jamie Vahala, November 23, 2020
Below is an excerpt of Dallas Observer’s “Bree & the Fellas Fight Through a Dark Age With Infectious Grooves” :
“Local neo-soul outfit Bree & the Fellas’ sophomore album It Be Like That Sometimes…, released via State Fair Records, runs the gamut thematically from relationships to escapism to civil rights. Songwriter Breanna Parker weaves these themes together with her trademark conversational songwriting, each song feeling like a back-and-forth with the singer.
“The most important thing to me is the lyrics,” Parker says. “I’ve been lately trying to make sure they’re relatable and positive. Like, if I die tomorrow what messages did I leave behind?’”
It’s in that vein that a good portion of the album sits — conversational songs with such heavy-hitting themes as Black empowerment (“Dear Society,” “Somebody”), lost friendship/love (“Snakes in the Grass,” “Don’t Try to Catch me,” “Closure”), as well as more lighthearted fare dealing with her recent engagement and the love that fuels it.”
