Having been born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, some would call me somewhat of a “city boy”, some of those same people may even say I’ll never understand Folk music, but those people can’t tell me what I should and shouldn’t like. Chords of Truth has recently released a brand new single by the name of “Freedom”, I’m sure you can guess what it’s about. At face value it tells a narrative about freedom itself as a concept. What is freedom? Chords of Truth would tell you “it’s a state of mind”. Catchy, deep, AND existential. I couldn’t agree more with Mr. Truth, “Freedom” brings to attention a word that has somewhat lost its purpose. In a world filled with dos and don’ts, Chords of Truth says, who cares?? “Freedom is undefined”, may well be the best definition I’ve heard for the word to date. Maybe it’s redundant, but there is no one way to be free! But maybe I’m getting ahead of myself.
I am a big fan of the lyrical theme in this new track, that has been made clear, but that is not all. How a track can sound so solid yet airy is beyond me but Chords of Truth has pulled it off excellently. Each verse is filled with playful overdriven guitars, kind of just, doing their own thing; it is bliss. Perhaps what sold me on this track was the chorus, the melodies all come together wonderfully here and complement each other in all aspects and truthfully, I can’t get enough. I couldn’t think of a better way for Chords of Truth to execute this message about freedom, than through a traditional Folk tune. “Freedom” is available for download NOW.
