Two Weeks In Nashville today release their brand new single ‘The Truth Is Just Counterfeit’, out now via Purple Heart Records / AWAL. The single comes accompanied by three more tracks from their forthcoming debut album, ‘Don’t Look Back’, ‘Warning Signs’ and ‘What Love Feels Like’, and continues an impressive rise, which has seen them sell out Camden Assembly, garner support from BBC Introducing and have their last single ‘Take Control’ played on Match of The Day and added to the MTV Rocks playlist.
Shot in the dark and under lockdown (the band live together), the video’s hallucinatory effects, swirling smoke and spliced close ups mirror lyrical themes of confusion, lost identity and questioning of self-worth, brought home through moody riffs and a slamming chorus. As frontman Billy explains, “‘The Truth Is Just Counterfeit’ was written to point a finger at all the takers out there. In a climate of fake personas, how do you know who to trust?”
Brought together through a love of the sounds, energy and extravagance of history’s greatest rock bands, Billy LeRiff, bassist Jonny Faires, guitarist Marc De Luca drummer Ian Wilson travelled to Nashville to hone their sound and record their first batch of releases. Having fallen in love with Music City, they’ve been back twice since then, but as Billy jokes, “Only for two weeks at a time”.
With an enviable work rate and a dynamic live presence that’s seen them play up and down the country and record at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, 2020 is seeing the four piece bring their fresh and enigmatic sound to wider and wider audiences.
