If you have yet to listen to the upcoming pop-country trio, Auburn Road, here is your sign to go stream their newest single, “Warning.” Paxton Martin, Kristen Brown, and Alicia Paulson are the three young women that make up Auburn Road.
Since the release of their debut EP Fancy, the trio has since amassed 17.1K Instagram followers, has traveled throughout California performing at clubs and county fairs, and most notably they have performed at Stagecoach Festival. They have opened for Morgan Wallen, Love & Theft, and country music legend Toby Keith.
Martin, Brown, and Paulson are life-long friends hailing from the suburbs of Sacramento. However, despite calling California home, their music reflects the spirit of Nashville. Their stunning harmonies, and sassy spirit are crashing through the typical labels placed on the women of country music.
“Warning” is a song about having believed that you were over the breakup and over the ex only to see them moving on with their life. The trio sings, “In my head I put you to rest / Thought the worse was done / I know that I should wish you the best / But didn’t think it’d come so fast.” All too familiar feelings for many of their listeners!
Auburn Road channels the fashion style of country fashionista Raelynn, the gritty experienced lyrics of Miranda Lambert, and the emotionally driven heart of Maddie & Tae. Auburn Road recorded their sophomore EP, Mustang Vol. 1 in lieu of studio tricks and auto tune.
Later on the girls sing, “I would have prepared myself / For seeing you with someone else / If I had a warning.” It’s unfortunately an inevitable part of moving on seeing the person that you once made happy, happy with someone else! The trio acknowledges, “Girl you better brace yourself because this is gonna hurt like hell.”
Auburn Road will soon be premiering the corresponding music video for their catchy single “Warning” in the upcoming weeks.
