Rose Cora Perry & The Truth Untold is a band you’re going to want to get behind.
I’m in love with their sound. Rose has such a memorable voice that blends with the music so well. I see big things on the horizon for this band.
The band from London, Ontario released their first EP, Other Side of the Story in 2019. It has five songs, and each one is good in its own way. I was surprised by how much I liked it.
“For What It’s Worth” is a great song to get the ball running. It’s about a lost love who she just can’t get over. It’s energetic and not your typical lost love song. It rocks.
“Easy Prey” is about the horrors of the world. She longs for a world where “no one kills. One where no one hates.” Her eyes have been opened to a world “that’s so clearly dying.” She tells you to not be easy prey to lies and hate. “Are you happy this way? Cause I’ve been going insane.” It’s written perfectly and will have you bobbing your head.
The EP slows down a bit with “Don’t.” It’s about a lover that keeps pushing her away due to the pain they’ve endured in the past. “Don’t keep lying to stop from falling for me.” It’s like, you know this feels right. Don’t push me away when you know we’re meant to be together. At the tail end of the song, it transitions into a beautiful mini cover of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters.”
Next is a cover of Adelle’s “Rolling in the Deep.” And it’s done to perfection. There’s more of an edge to this than the original, and I think it’s better. Rose’s one-of-a-kind voice stands out in this one. It’s a good spin on one of the biggest hits of the modern era.
The final song on the EP, “Darkest Days” is a good way to cap it off. With the weight of the world on her shoulders, it gets harder to keep pushing. “While I appear to be so strong on the surface, inside every word, every glance makes me nervous.” It’s always those who seem so strong that are struggling the most. Every song on this EP is so deep and written beautifully. An incredible piece of work that I’d highly recommend.
The pandemic put a halt to the rise of the band, cancelling a European tour. After taking a break, they released the single “Not My Time” last fall, and it’s something special. It speaks to the frustration that many people felt during the pandemic.
Divided we fall
It’s part of the plan
They’re breaking us down
Every way that they can
It’s easy to turn
Against those in tow
When we’re taught to trust
The ones in the know
Those lyrics have punch, and make you feel something. She hits the nail on the head and I can’t wait to see what comes next. I’m just patiently waiting for a concert in BC.
Until that happens, listen to Rose Cora Perry & the Truth Untold on Evolution!
