Like walking down a favorite neighborhood street, slapping-five with friends, checking up with clerks in their stores, admiring your own dark sun-glassed face in their windows, ducking under flowerpots and smelling the familiar smells of your most cherished locale. The sound of soul group The True Loves is just like that. The album “Sunday Afternoon” will be released at May 28.
‘Sunday Afternoon’ by the Seattle-based instrumental soul group True Loves is as sweet and carefree as the imagery provoked by its very title. The soul outfit’s sophomore LP provides a soundtrack for a block party that summons the entire neighborhood. From the zealous, up-tempo opening track “S.O.S” to the swagger-filled fanfare title track, you’ll find yourself wandering down a familiar road, noticing the scenery while relishing in curiosity. While every track can stand alone on the airwaves, ‘Sunday Afternoon’ as a whole is a direct reflection of a band comprised of seasoned musicians, all forces to be reckoned with, but larger than life when together.
