Music fans of the Pacific Northwest, get ready for our sixth annual year-end daily local music showcase, 100 Bands in 100 Days, where every day until December 31st, we’ll be showcasing a new band or artist you have to know about. For the fourth year in a row, the showcase is once again presented by Verity Credit Union.

Make sure you are checking the #100Bands100Days hashtag on Twitter on a daily basis to stay on top of all the bands featured and be sure to follow Verity and NW_Music_Scene on there. Some days the featured act could be an established and locally-adored northwest-based musician and other times they could be a band with a small following that just hasn’t had their deserved time in the spotlight yet. Either way, we’re fairly confident you can come away from this daily segment with plenty of new favorites. Today’s featured act is True Primitives.

About the band: 

If fuzzed out psychedelic melodies coupled with dreamy vocals that sound like something from another planet is your thing (and frankly it should be), today’s featured band has just what you are looking for. The 8-song offering released in August is packed full of space age riffs that will provide listening pleasure for a long time to come. We get a lot of music sent to us this time of year and Revolutions is among our favorites so far. Give the band a listen below and we are confident you’ll be hooked instantly. It just so happens that we are also premiering the band’s trippy new video for “Spectral in Color” from the new album. You can see that HERE or simply scroll down the page.

About True Primitives’ Revolutions

Clint Sargent, founding member and lead guitarist of Portland’s The High Violets, wrote songs over a two-year period for a new project and in 2018 formed the band, True Primitives. Sargent delivers guitars, keys, percussion, pedals and vocals on True Primitives’ debut album Revolutions with Portland musicians Collin Hegna (Federale, The Brian Jonestown Massacre) providing bass, keys, and percussion; Luke Strahota (The High Violets, Satin Chaps) weighing in on drums; John Mason IV (Verner Pantons) on guitar. Kaitlyn ni Donovan, also a member of The High Violets, performs backup vocals on “Real Love”and violin and viola on “Up in the Sky”. Revolutions was recorded and produced at Revolver Studios in Portland, Oregon, by Sargent and Hegna.


Watch ‘Spectral in Color’ from Portland’s True Primitives

“Spectral in Color” comes from Revolutions, True Primitives’ smokin’ hot debut album released in August. The song bubbles up slowly from a symphony of shimmering guitar and synth, blasting off into a sonic groove with soaring guitars, tribal beats and lush harmonies to create a wall of sound.
