Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to TruckerBomb. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the atmosphere of their music.
Are you ready for a trip in the desert?
This music made me, from the very first notes, travel with my imagination and I found myself driving a convertible in the desert that leads to Vegas.
This music made me breathe freedom and I felt the warmth of the sun on my skin. Like a rattlesnake, I sought shelter under a stone so as not to be seen by anyone.
This music made me take an incredible introspective journey and the melody of the voice, especially in the chorus, moved me.
We are faced with great musicians who have a great musical understanding between them.
Sometimes their way of composing music reminded me of John Mellencamp.
A beautiful discovery that I recommend to everyone.
Light of Jesus is TruckerBomb’s Single Out Now!
Nostalgic and Exciting!
The music of TruckerBomb takes a dash of dive bar grunge and mixes it with the up-tempo swing of honky-tonk. Los Angeles isn’t known as a hotbed for Americana, but that doesn’t stop TruckerBomb from doing their thing. It’s just a matter of time before one of their songs gets dropped into a film soundtrack.
The band’s third single, “Light of Jesus,” departs from the solid country-rock styling of the previous releases with a moody blend of instruments, showing off the versatility of the players and complementing the expressive lyrics. Inspired by a broken nightlight, the song takes on a direction of its own and challenges listeners to make their own decisions about its meaning.
Troy Richardson isn’t a common songwriter. He’s known for his ability to twist a phrase, infusing sarcasm and humor in equal doses to serious observations. In the case of the latest release, the more literal the lyrics get, the more evocative they become.
Growing up, Troy Richardson spent many summers in South Dakota. Compared to his hometown of Minneapolis, it felt like the wild west. Even though he’d go on to spend most of his time playing in rock bands, he never forgot the vibe of those truck stops and diners that cranked up classic ’70s country. Inspired by that experience, and the southern rock of the ’80s that threw a little bit of every style into the mix, he formed TruckerBomb to bridge alt-country and Americana with alternative and hard rock.
