Truth x Lies lead forthcoming EP, ‘Other Side,’ with stimulating single, ‘Burn It Down’
In the saturated house music market, Truth x Lies are distinguishing themselves with a style of sound that transcends the commercial to embrace the underground. Need an example? A new one has just landed: “Burn It Down,” a track that provides the introduction to Truth x Lies’ forthcoming EP, Other Side.
A rhythmic indulgence that intermingles potent house technics with tech house elements, “Burn It Down” maintains a house character while flirting with industrial sound that, at time, borders on experimental, in a constructive twist that allows the New York City-based duo and coproducer, Austin Hennessey, to stand out among fellow producers aiming for tastemaker status in the electronic scene. It’s stimulating, pulsating, a surefire guilty pleasure of an underground club—if one were operating. Yet, no matter, for when they reopen, Truth x Lies’ latest will unsurprisingly prove inescapable, and is poised to dominate streamers’ playlists in the interim.
