The Harsh Truth – “Stereo Dream”


stereo dream

Based out of Columbia, South Carolina, The Harsh Truth formed in the fall of 2014. They take inspiration from the likes of Tame Impala and Toro y Moi in showcasing an appreciation for psych acts of the ’60s and ’70s; the latter decade was especially not afraid to inject some funk into any stylistic presentation — as The Harsh Truth’s excellent new track “Stereo Dream” does well. An occasional slap bass, spacious synth pad, and slight guitar riffs help drive the anthemic verses, while the chorus presents a burst of grandiose guitar/synth hybrids that is likely to get fans of The Who’s Tommy all nostalgic. “Stereo Dream” is enjoyably stuck between a bunch of different decades, with an infectious knack to take the best parts of them all.
