Following the release of their 2020 album ‘Can’t Change It’, The Mystix returns with the infectious ‘TruVine’. You can’t help but find yourself tapping along to record opener ‘Satisfy You 22’ as it introduces you to the rock leaning album. The raspy, distorted vocals of Jo Lily really give this album an edge on songs like ‘Up Jumped The Devil’ whilst immediately we are then introduced to the band’s more delicate side on ‘I Guess I Lose’, the pain of defeat audible in his voice as he delivers a clear vocal with space in the production for the feelings to hit home. This is the strongest song on the album which as a whole is my favourite to date of The Mystix. They have a clear identity which may not appeal to all country fans but there’s some strong songwriting on this album, the vocalist has character and the producer has done a great job on the production.
