Tyler Dial, "Truth in the Way"
Tyler Dial may look the part of a fresh-faced college grad (in fact, he is), but there's hidden depth in his lyrics and vocal style. The Texas singer arrives with this thumping jam about the ambiguous end of a relationship – and the inevitable hookups that come after it. He's just fine with that though, as he begs his lover to come hither and not let "the truth get in the way." It's a cavalier request, but Dial, the latest artist under Jay Joyce's Neon Cross roster, proves persuasive enough to be irresistible. J.H.
