CRITIC REVIEWS

90
AllMusic

Ovlov started strong with Am; with TRU they have made good on all that promise and released the kind of breathtakingly great record most bands can only dream about making.

80
Northern Transmissions
While it can be a bit off-putting at times, their powerful writing and ability to experiment with dynamics makes the album the most interesting.
80
Spectrum Culture
Simply put, there won’t be a more welcoming rock album this year, and maybe not a better one period.
80
No Ripcord

Ovlov make the most of a lateral move rather than a full-on reinvention in TRU.

80
Under The Radar

Ovlov sound refreshed and, in typical Ovlov fashion ... their sound and energy is wildly unexpected, constantly scratching a guitar-rock itch without becoming a nuisance.

78
Pitchfork

With Tru, Hartlett soundly reasserts Ovlov’s signature strength: the band’s ability to fortify tender songs with muscular squall in a way that doesn’t obscure their emotional intent, but amplifies it.

The Skinny

Overall, TRU is a promising step for Ovlov, albeit one that doesn’t always succeed when it comes to standing out from its peers.

gosto bastante deste som de guitarra. Algmas harmonias mto boas, gosto do reverb/distorção e algns efeitos q deixam o som bem dreamy e shoegazy. Mas sei lá, depois de escutar os singles, me decepcionou um pouco. Fica repetitivo, nada mto diferente, esses elementos q mencionei chamam a atenção realmente em algmas 3 músicas pra mim.

Tru maybe sound repetitive at first look but if you try to pay more attention you could realize the every song has a distinction - doesn't mean this is a flawless record - that makes everything addictive and enjoyable as a whole.
