True North (from the album Open Road, Broken Heart)
True North have found a cure for the album title for their recent release, Open Road, Broken Heart. The Pacific Northwest-based band find a parking spot to enter “Dark Horse Bar & Grill” and spin slowly on the barstool for the sad Country tale. Open Road, Broken Heart boards a greyhound bus in a wedding dress on the opening cut (“One-Way Ticket”) as the lovers left behind view departing taillights as leaving while those on the highway hear the hum of freedom from the tires. The stories on Open Road, Broken Heart has a common path for its cast of characters, all of whom are on the move whether they walk into lucky breaks or fortify their respective spirits to find the courage to head for the exit door.
Taking a shot of “Mighty Bourbon”, True North find themselves in morning-after county jail as their strums usher in mental ghosts with “Sunday Night Blues” and they scatter “Small Wonders” on a rapid banjo-fueled melody. Open Road, Broken Heart does the math for a final goodbye in “Ratio of Angels to Demons” as it turns “The Eye” towards old friends and past love and steps around sharp-angled rhythms for “I’m Gone” while True North match the male/female dual vocals of the band to twin guitar lines in “Wilder Than Her” and watch the earth spin seasons in “Seed, Leaf, Flowers, Seed”.
