Niall Summerton – “Truth Inside”


“Truth Inside” is a tranquil, mellow rocker with jangly appeal. Niall Summerton shows a consuming knack for dreamy, textured songwriting in addition to lushly engaging vocals. Aesthetically, there’s a fond likeness to acts like The Clientele and The Radio Dept.. Several moments, like the acoustics evolving to twangy escalation around 02:30, are thoroughly replay-inducing. “Truth Inside” casts its own sort of spell.

Summerton describes the release as “an observational love song that I wrote in a new room that I spent a lot of lockdown in. It’s about succumbing to how you feel and accepting emotional.”

“Truth Inside” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2021’ Spotify playlist.
