Trü unveils debut EP + plays Mexicali Live (NJ) on 07.01

Trü unveils debut EP + plays Mexicali Live (NJ) on 07.01

Montclair-based band trü released their debut self-titled EP this past Friday, and it is a heavy blend of garage, punk, and emo. The four songs off this project are packed with driven guitar, bass, and drums topped with serene, lugubrious vocals. Their melodic yet messy and big sound seems influenced by bands like Basement and Balance & Composure, yet offers a taste of something more; whether it’s the more alt-rock ‘Decemberists’ sound off of “Kirsti”, or the clean intro from their enthralling closing track, “Hand in Hand” (streaming), Trü seems to be pushing their boundaries beyond their influences. Be sure to keep an eye out for any upcoming shows. - Pearse Devlin
