The Damn Truth's 'Heart Is Cold'
With the musical zeitgeist seemingly occupied by alt/indie broodings and shiny pop ephemera, Canadian band The Damn Truth are here to firmly plant a proudly raucous flag for the power and vivacity of good ol' rock'n'roll. Forging a coruscating brand of blues-inflected, fret-board shredding rock'n'roll, and led by the blisteringly inimitable catharsis of Lee-La Baum's incredible vocal delivery, the Montreal four-piece have taken themselves from clubs and festivals to commercial airplay over recent years with the fire and passion of their standout rock vibe.
Back in 2016 with new single 'Heart Is Cold' ahead of the release of their 'Devilish Folk' album, The Damn Truth again remind just why we rally so eagerly to their rock'n'roll banner. From the opening combination of stomping drums and a fuzzy, churning riff, 'Heart Is Cold' sets the adrenaline pumping with pulsing, turbulent eruptions of urgently grinding guitars and pounding percussion that perfectly animate the emotional tumult of Baum's anguished, gritty vocal howl.
