The first time I saw Terrible Truths live was at Copacabana on Smith St in Melbourne (an unusual venue for this kind of music). I was standing by the side of the stage and the first thing that I noticed was the drummer Joe Alexander playing without any shoes on. This kind of sums up the care-free nature of Terrible Truths. The band are like watching fireworks in a closed jar, unpredictable, yet tightly contained, somewhat like the late band Ponytail.
Terrible Truths recently returned from a Europe tour with Totally Mild and their debut full length album is out October 9th via Bedroom Suck Records. Before you go out and catch them playing at Melbourne Music Week, check out their choices for Trading Tunes.
1. Totally Mild – ‘Move On’
“We just had the immense privilege of touring Europe with these total angels. Seeing them play every night was magic, and something we could never tire of. Pretty sure this killer tune is gonna be stuck in our heads FOREVER, but who’s complaining. Awesome band, amazing people, 10 out of 10, A+, love them.”
