True Gents have been around for over a decade with an ep out under the band name in 2009 which received warm reviews, an album called 'In the Dark we set Sail' in 2013 which received critical acclaim and most recently released 'Blood Moon' in 2017 seeing the band move from a previously alt-folk disposition into a more  folk-rock arrangement. This last album also received great write-ups and even got some attention from America.

CONNECTION THROUGH MUSIC

As a band we have always tried to focus on portraying feelings and emotions through creativity, which we hope that people will be able to relate to around the globe, and in that way we create a connection...

 

WHO ARE WE?

Fans Unlike Any Others..

..True Gents are an 7 piece band from Scotland with "a special vein of atmospheric, psych-infused jangle pop..” The ‘Spill

 

TRUE GENTS were formed by School friends Euan Nicol and Toby Jeffery in 2006. They would meet up in the haunting woods of Invermay, Perthshire and work on songs late into the day. Shortly after writing songs together the pair entered and won a singer/songwriter competition at Dougie Macleans Perthshire Amber which earned them the title ‘cult songsmiths’ and stood them in good stead to build a band.

Over the past few years Jeffery/Nicol have been working hard to continually progress as writers by introducing different elements into the band and adapting their styles.

 

Working with talented local producers like Robin Wynn-Evans (Manic Street Preachers, Sam Brown, The View, Dodgy), and David Macfarlane (TRUE GENTS, Red Pine Timber Company, The New Madrids) the True Gents have created a back catalogue of music which has received warm reviews over the years.

 

Their line up changed not so long ago, original members left include songwriting duo Jeffery/Nicol (guitars/vocals)  

With the introduction of - Stu (the thunder) Bennett on lead guitar, the hard hitting Toole brothers on the rhythm section and Rea Pirnie/Rosemary Stanford on backing vocals (beautiful vocals like the sirens in greek mythology drawing sailors to their peril).

 

The bands sounds have been described as psych-infused jangle-pop and include influences from Indie, Folk-Rock and psych pop influences, ranging from many of the bands influences such as Turin Brakes, The Byrds, Magnolia Electric Company, Spiritualized, Andrew Bird, Sufjan Stevens, the Beta Band to name but a few…

 

As a band the True Gents have played venues, pubs and festivals around Scotland, and have shared the bill will groups such as the Treacherous Orchestra, Red Hot Chilli Pipers- (@Horse Cross & Perth Concert Hall), Colonel Mustard and the Dijon 5, The John Langan Band, Shooglenifty and The Levellers..

 PRESS:

“..Good choppy guitar licks make this album appeal immediately to me”.. 

“..I’ve definitely got to see this band live, sounds like some good-time rock-and-roll to be best enjoyed loud in a seedy venue somewhere in Scotland between pints and whiskeys..”  - CT Herron 

<http://www.newhellfireclub.co.uk/news/2017/5/4/true-gents-blood-moon-album-review-ct-herron#>

 

“..a special vein of psych-infused jangle-pop..” - The ‘Spill

 

“..a new act to my ears that draw from a huge swell of sounds..”

“..almost with a vibe akin to Arab Strap..”  - Austin Town Hall. 

 

“a beautiful sounding song, featuring a winding, layered and beautiful array of vocals and instruments. This is definitely a song that stays with you and will surely leave you wanting to hear more.." - IndieMusicReviewer.com (5* review of "Honeycomb Heart" single)

 

"With intelligent lyrics and an eagerness to share songs with depth and interest, In The Dark, We Set Sail is an album filled with imagination and character" - BrightYoungfolk.com

..

"I’d say these lads are going to be in hot demand and they knocks the socks off of the likes Mumford and Sons so if you are a festival organiser book’em now…it’ll be a party!" - Folkradio.co.uk

..

"Their distinctive take on diverse traditional genres from folk to shanties, all rendered with more than a nod in the direction of psychedelia and indie pop has made listeners stand up and take notice" - Perthshire Advertiser
