Truth Club are fun and noisy as hell on “Blue Eternal”

Four years ago, Truth Club shared their debut album, Not an Exit. They displayed a knack for spacious, askew post-punk with some more raucous moments, such as the record’s whiplash-inducing title track. The Raleigh, N.C. band’s comeback single (and their first with their new label Double Double Whammy), is a triple-axel dive into the noisy tendencies of their past songs, crashing beneath the surface of nostalgia and into a new world of fuzz rock.

In a press release, bandmember Yvonne Chazal spoke about the Double Double Whammy signing. “When I was 18, I was discovering this new world of young people who write music in their bedrooms like Frankie Cosmos, Told Slant, Free Cake, that were all totally blowing my mind,” she said. “I kept seeing the name Double Double Whammy everywhere, and that was the first time I ever really understood what a record label was. It feels like such a full-circle moment to sign with them, and we are feeling so grateful that the record found such a great home.”
