And just like that, December is on our doorstep and as the days reach maximum temperature and the kids get cooler, Texx Talks and Ray-Ban are asking you to be ready to express your truest selves and say to any final challenges of the year: #YouAreOn
Today has been a momentous one for us because we are currently recording our first live show in front of an audience, something we would have never thought possible without the support of our firm friends, Ray-Ban. So while we get all of that in order, we are bringing you an episode from our vault featuring Portugal the Man, hoping that you will “Feel It Still”.
Portugal, the Man is a Grammy-winning band that fuses elements of psychedelia and classic rock, with a dash of modern pop and a willingness to experiment, and founding member and bassist, Zachary Carothers, isn’t shy to admit it was all a bit of a fluke at first.
Not ones to shy away from speaking their mind, both on and off their records, their last album was responsible for a song that became omnipresent the world over (“Feel It Still”) and became such an earworm, you never got tired of hearing it.
From growing up in Alaska, to the effect of moving to Portland on the band’s trajectory, to falling in love with South Africa after their 2015 tour opened their eyes to the beauty of the country, Zach speaks candidly about all the places he’s been and the places he’s planning on going as he’s getting older.
