Calhoun have been the forebears of Fort Worth, Texas’ burgeoning indie scene for years now, earning album of the year from the Fort Worth Weekly for 2011’s Heavy Sugar and gaining a passionate local following.

With this fall’s EP, Paperweights, they have their sights set higher. The foundational elements of Tim Locke’s incisive songwriting and delicate harmonies are still present, but they’ve fully embraced the pop songcraft that began to creep into their Americana sound on Heavy Sugar. If lead single “Fatal Flaws” is any indication, this EP will pack a suitcase full of hooks.
