‘To thine own self be true” a lyric that not only opens The Nu Now’s latest single but acts as in introduction to a deeply hypnotic dance song and lyrically potent single. The Nu Now are “calling our souls to wake up, calling our souls to be aware” with their latest release. Sonically the pulsating baseline and 80s-esque -but yet futuristic- synths and pounding drums keep the listener aware and profoundly in the present of the rhythm. The wake up comes when the track crescendos into the chorus, an infatuating chant of “the truth will set you free” layered over a pumping beat and synth line with EDM elements and hints of House that all add to their version of Electronic Music . Vocally ‘Truth’ delivers the performance needed to make a the single resonate, big blasts of vocals follow build ups in the beat and flow of the track, notes are held to emphasize the trance like rhythm that unfolds. The Nu Now not only bring substance but fuel for the dance floor with the truth of “Truth”.
