The melancholy tones of Gruff Rhys and the precise electronica of Tomas Barfod make for ideal companions in this Record Store Day release, out later this month on Secretly Canadian. And not to sound like a broken record myself, but this is a label with some seriously high quality releases so far in 2014.
The electronic pulses and Rhys’ vocals give the track a similar feel to Some Things Come From Nothing, which appeared on the Super Furry Animals 1999 album Guerilla.
If you like this (hint: you should) then you should enjoy that track, too:
True to You goes beyond the sonic and lyrical limitations of Some Things Come From Nothing, taking flight into a beautiful new realm of electronic pop balladry.
True to You is out on… well, obviously it’s out on 19th April, as that is when this year’s Record Store Day will be taking place.
