ENGINE – Truth Be Told: Track Premiere

Listen to Truth Be Told from the debut EP by ENGINE

Feature by News Team | 12 Jan 2017

Leeds quartet ENGINE are a force to be reckoned with. Combining an unashamedly baggy groove with the woozily modern psychedelicisms of Jagwar Ma et al, they're simultaneously a welcome throwback and utterly in tune with the zeitgeist: a familiar formula refined to the point of perfection. Classic guitar-based dance music with electronic and organic pulses in perfect harmony.

New track Truth Be Told is taken from their forthcoming debut EP, and you can listen to an exclusive stream in the player below. In the band's own words: "The song was conceived and recorded at our respective home studios in the Leeds suburbs; the inner heart of Burley and the outer ring of Headingley. A patchwork of sketchy samples and reverberated live recordings, we built the track up over several weeks.

"The lyric concerns our own confusion: What is the truth? When is the truth? Who is the truth? We're just not sure. We'll keep wondering through wandering though, on this track and our forthcoming EP. "
