Harris’ Song of the Week: All We Need by Tru Fam Featuring Dinner and a Suit

The best music often comes along unexpectedly. This weeks song of the week comes from the rap duo Tru Fam. Based in New Jersey, Tru Fam are another group trying to bridge the gap between rap and pop. The song also features Dinner and a Suit, an alternative rock band from Nashville. From what I can tell, lead singer Jonathan Capeci is the only member of the band actually in the recording.

Tru Fam may have come along at a perfect time. With a path cleared by singers and rappers like Bruno Mars and B.o.B., this song fits the mold to a tee. Capeci sings an extremely catchy hook while the pair of rappers take care of the verse.

Upon hearing the song the first time via YouTube, I had the audio on in the background but wasn’t actually watching the video. Once the melody caught my ear, I went back and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the music video for the song. With Capeci performing on a black and white television, the video is simplistic but reveals something about the groups personality. Give this one a listen. If you’re not at least humming the chorus something is wrong.

    …Are you serious? Hey Harris, how much did they pay you to say that? Or do you actually just have no idea what you’re talking about when it comes to good music?
