Attxla's clothing is his own, with a Cartier watch from Deutsch Houston.

Electro-pop artist Attxla, 24, comes from a long lineage of medical professionals; he grew up imagining he’d follow suit. But that all changed when he started tinkering around on music programs on his computer five years ago, and discovered a gift of song.


His debut record — produced by John Allen Stephens, also included in this feature — dropped last fall, and now he’s nearly finished with his sophomore effort, slated to be released by end of summer. While his first release, Ebb, depicts his struggles with depression, his next album, Flow, takes a more positive stance. “It’s about everything rushing back in. It’s about trying to find self-love instead of self-loathing.”

Those lessons were put to use during quarantine. “I’ve been writing a lot, but in more of a free-form sense, just to put down what and how I’m feeling in the moment without trying to form a song out of it.”

THE BOOM CONTINUES. Some 11,348 homes changed hands in the Houston area in April, totaling just under $4 billion in sales — up 86 percent from Covid-struck April of 2020, says the Houston Association of Realtors. "Low interest rates inspired consumers to snap up high-end homes in April at a pace never before seen," says HAR in a statement, "sending prices to new highs while keeping home inventory at historic lows." Single-family home sales were up more than 47 percent, to 9,107, the biggest one-month year-over-year surge ever. And, keeping with the recent trend, the priciest homes — those priced $750,000 or more — are setting the curve; sales in that category were up "a staggering 164.3 percent." Here are the 10 multimillion-dollar manses that led the way.
