Albert Hammond Jr has been crafting music for well over a decade at this point, and on his latest single,”Far Away Truths”, he’s able to spin the very angular rock music of the oughts in a bright new way. A guitar / bass dynamic hearkens a bit back to the 1980s; supersonic vocals draw upon Rush as much as Interpol.
Far Away Truths has that catchy instrumentation that will tattoo itself deep into the minds and hearts of listeners. An insistent beat and considerable depth ensures that the single has legs through the last few days of summer and into the beginning of school.
We covered Hammond’s Yours To Keep all the way back in 2007.
