This slice of mid-2000s indie rock is a new sound for Jungle. While recording their third album Loving in Stereo
, the neo-soul duo determined to accept whatever happens in the studio, and "Truth," which takes influence from mid-2000s bands like The Strokes and Kings of Leon, came quickly.
"I think that song is a return to the roots of our friendship – that that song isn't far from a Strokes song at all," producer and multi-instrumentalist Joshua Lloyd-Watson told NME
. "That song came together in 10 minutes – I think it's testament to how we were writing and recording this record. With our second album, we took six-months-to-a-year to write a single track, and these tracks… were just waiting there for us. It's like trying to paint a masterpiece; the more you try and perfect it, the shi--er it becomes."
