T.R.U.E.

The Rat Utopia Experiment

The Rat Utopia Experiment, AKA T.R.U.E, is an anarchist American rock band based out of Tacoma, Washington. 

They consist of five members--Phia, 15 (lead vocals,guitar), Aine,16 (bass, backup vocals), Maddox, 18 (guitar), Jackson, 16 (guitar), and Evan, 19 (drums), who dominate the stage as well as their enemies. 

Despite their contrasting music tastes, the band comes together to form a sound that's a tragic clash of metal riffs, emo, a sprinkle of nu-metal, and themes of anti-establishment that give you the vague urge to jay-walk. 

Interlude For The Angels is their latest single, a deeply personal song about feeling disillusioned from love while simultaneously craving it, speaking on an overall feeling of shame surrounding the topic of romance. It encapsulates a desperate tone as its verses follow the story of two separate characters. 

The band was been selected to perform in SoundOff! 2024, the premier 21-and-under music showcase in the Pacific Northwest, and has been the KISW 99.9 Loud and Local Band of The Week along with receiving airplay on KEXP AND KISW.

Minds Like Concrete is a story-driven song that was written over a three-month period. It started with a prompt; "moving forward after the pandemic." The band decided to take the first half of that prompt, "moving forward," and turn it into something entirely different- a girl based in a freshly apocalyptic world moving forward with her new way of living. The song carries themes of feminity, being true to yourself, and not letting your past define you, while still telling a structured story.
