Font – Sentence I

Maile Carballo / KUTX

Each week during Left of the Dial, KUTX Music Director, Rick McNulty shares the best song he heard this week.

ATX five-piece Font maintains a refreshing rejection of modern music marketing trends. Barely any social media presence, mostly absent from major streaming services, and a band name that’s impossible to google search. It probably contributed to our only recent discovery of them, but that’s just the price for being mysterious and cool.

Sincerely though, Font is cool not because of their enigmatic existence but because of their impeccable taste for 80’s post-punk sounds. A little Bauhaus, Wire, and Gang of Four mingles with a modern ear and attitude for easily the best thing we heard this week.

P.S. You catch them live at our 10th Birthday Concert Series at Levitation this fall!


“This track is one of the most exciting things to come out of Austin in a while. It harkens back to the glorious era when post-punk bands ruled the underground and the guitar was king. I can’t wait for the next one from Font.”
