Syd Carter West Releases New Song “The Ugly Truth”
- Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Syd Carter West is back with a new song “The Ugly Truth” on November 3, 2021.
It is her first single since the 2020 self-titled EP.
The song is an anthemic track about self-acceptance, featuring '70s R&B, Southern-rock and blues-rock sound.
The sound is driving with a powerful slide guitar and rhythm sections, featuring her soulful vocals and chorus.
“‘The Ugly Truth’ is my confession that reveals my inner demons, flaws, mistakes, and that I’m unapologetically embracing my truth,” Syd Carter West said of the song. “This song is speaking to those who ever doubted, misunderstood, judged, or belittled me, by letting them know that I’m done with pretending to be someone I’m not and trying to meet their expectations on who I should be.”
She continued, “Lyrics are the gateway into an artist’s life and share special moments that others can relate to, and in order for the meaning to be clearly revealed, we as singers must convey that through clear words and emotions.”
She added, “I am my own person and my own individual whether you accept it or not. I went through hell trying to change myself, and it’s not worth it. I would rather be ridiculously weird than normal.”
