CRED Track of the Week

True Loves - "First Impression"

"First Impression” by the True Loves showcases their signature dirty guitar, in-your-face-drumming and powerhouse horn section. As one of Seattle’s beloved premiere funk and soul acts, the track is a testament to the finesse of an ensemble of veteran musicians coming together and writing music in a group setting. The song started out as the rhythm section jamming on a groove at rehearsal one night. The horns, just hanging out and enjoying the music, eventually joined in with a more simple version of what would become the crisp and punchy melody you hear now. “First Impression” displays the harder funk side of their catalog in the vein of iconic horn-fueled acts such as Tower of Power, Chicago and Parliament. Guitarist Jimmy James and tenor saxophonist Gordon Brown are the featured soloists and as the song reaches the apex of the horn a capella soli, percussionist Iván Galvéz simmers the vibe down with a timbale feature to fade the song out. The track is the second single off of the band’s forthcoming second full-length album ‘Sunday Afternoon’ being released by Color Red on May 28, 2021.
