Bridge 19 debuts the music video for their track “The Truth.”
The song: “The Truth,” off of Bridge 19’s latest album, In the Afterglow, available now.
About the song: “‘The Truth’ is a song about a reckoning after a relationship has ended,” says front woman Audrey Cecil. For better or for worse, a lot of times after something ends — whether there was fault or not, whether it was amicable or not — you realize a lot of self-truths. You have that moment where you go back and say, ‘Where did I go wrong?’ Even when those harsh things are said or screamed at you, a lot of times you don’t really hear it until it’s over.
“This song was the last one to really make the cut for recording, and we were very intentional about making it upbeat and fun, sonically. It's lyrically a little less heavy that some of the others on In the Afterglow, so we had some room to play around with how we really wanted it to feel. We are happy we did. People seem to really like it and so do we.”
The band: Bridge 19 hails from Louisville, Kentucky. Front women Audrey Cecil and Amanda Lucas, and Meg Samples, Jeff Faith, and Joey Thieman take stages by storm with original compositions that blend folk, pop, and soul.
About the video: Filmed like a live performance, “The Truth” showcases the close-knit relationships of the bandmates. While they perform, the video cuts from singing to conversing to laughing together, showing a true camaraderie.
Why we like it: While leads Cecil and Lucas do a fantastic job of balancing vocal harmonies, the other band members show impressive talent on horns, moody electric guitars, drums, and flowing piano.
