Released: 10.03.23







The welcome return of Dutch Uncles sees them in exquisite form as title track True Entertainment bursts into life, immediately recalling a sound akin to their second album Cadenza. There is a perpetual groove that runs throughout, building as the record progresses. Tropical (2 to 5) is sure to make you tap your toes, whereas Poppin’ has an air of Franz Ferdinand about it. 

This really is off-kilter pop music at its best, In Salvia feels a little more chilled out, but that groove is unrelenting. As a record it’s wonderfully cohesive as it builds towards closing track Dead Letter, compounding the brilliance of True Entertainment. A return to form from Dutch Uncles, you really couldn’t ask for more!
