Ladies and gentlemen, welcome, welcome, to 75 Bands in 75 Days, where we’re showcasing some of the best talent that the Pacific Northwest has to offer, at least one band per day, leading up to December 31st, to ring in a new year. We had to take a few days off to give some attention to the 2014 NorthWest Music Scene Reader’s Poll, so we are playing catch up. This list is in no particular order and it is not a chart or a countdown. It’s merely a list of bands or musicians that we feel are worthy of checking out. The band for day 59 is a Seattle band called True Holland.
In one form another True Holland has been in work for six years, various lineup and location changes have brought the band into fruition. Setting shop in Tacoma Washington, 2011 opened up time for the first self-titled, five track release. Title tacks gained instant local notoriety and opened up featured spots on Zumiez Couch and Van’s Warped Tour.
Every lick of what’s recorded is apparent in their live performance; you get the accents and clarity of what’s being presented. They’ve honed down a tight, high energy set with few cuts that leaves ticket holders with a sense understanding and appreciation for what’s been previously tracked.
True Holland, holding hard to distant alt-rock roots amongst the sea of tangled patch cables, hard drives and kids with high limit credit cards.
