The True Spokes

Rocketship

Straight to it: Seattle’s The True Spokes are as fundamentally together and on-point a new classic rock band as any going today. Dead solid songwriting, undisguised passion, top notch musicianship, and the list goes on. That they haven’t long ago kicked the likes of Taylor Swift, Nickelback and any of the TV show vocalist puppets off the airwaves is a sign of the system’s failure not a stripe on what these guys do. To wit, this sweet, succinct lil’ love song off their 2012 eponymous debut album (pick it up here), which uses a technological icon as a shared project of love, launching off with that most human of sounds – hands clapping out a come hither rhythm.
