Hailing from the stifling depths ofouter suburban living in South Australia, Terrible Truths have turned their local music scene on its head from the get-go, challenging conventions and finding themsevles at the fore of a creative musical reneaisannce.
Limited recordings have trickled out over the years, from the long out-of-print EP released via SA label Small Town City Living, through to a split release with Melbournes similarly-minded Hissey Miyake and a hit single through eminent NYC label Mexican Summer. The band have now turned up the heat on their creative output, with a debut LP finally set for release this October, as well as a spot at Incubate Festival in the Netherlands, touring with label mates Blank Realm and Totally Mild.
Whilst their music beholden to a range of late-70s and early 80s post-punk and no wave sounds, with a healthy mix of 90s riot grrrl flavour, the key to their sound is a fresh and spirted approach to music making that stands our amongst their contemporaries, harking back to the almost na√Øve energy and enthusaism of early DIY punk and hardcore. The intertwined vocals of guitarist Rani Rose and bassist Stacey Wilson evoke feelings of freedom and discovery; melodies soar in triumphant succession before descending into dark patterns of gloom and goth.
A truly triumphant record, the long-awaited debut from Terrible Truths paints a precise and remarkably rapid-fire picture of a new talent set to take the world by storm.
