There’s something sultry about the way a staccato drum beat, operatic chanting, and swirling synths converge in the opening seconds of True Loves that make it irresistible. Running at just under three-and-a-half minutes, no second of True Loves seems wasted. Vocals are peppered throughout the song, but it’s not why you should listen to it. The song’s weight is carried by its instrumentation and a strong arrangement, as well its repetitive chorus, a line of lyrics sung above the intro’s chanting which serves as a soothing ambience throughout. Hooray For Earth’s dreamlike and futuristic indie-pop sound fits in well with the rest of what’s all the rage today. But True Loves is a song you’ll find yourself listening to more and more, as it floats by like a cloud in the sky and carries you along with it. Download the track at www.tinyurl.com/Uniter-Hooray.
