The Liverpool trio currently making waves thanks to their cinematic indie sound and their persuasive live shows.
Described as ‘Mutant 50s Pop’, Trudy and the Romance specialise in a ramshackle but cinematic sound that’s made BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq declare himself a bona fide fan. Jangling guitars and yelped vocals make the band’s three-minute perfect pop offerings essential listening for fans of the Libertines, early Maccabees and the likes of The Big Moon and Yak. Expect pleading lyrics and melodies that half-slur and half-soar in equal measure.
After forming in Liverpool, the boys played a series of packed-out shows and won countless fans through their inimitable festival appearances. They soon found their way into the pages of style magazines such as i-D, Wonderland and Nylon and joined DIY’s Class of 2017 and NME’s ‘100 for 2017
Their upcoming Junkyard Jazz EP, out on 17th November, was recorded in a former vicarage in Stockport with producer David Pye and takes its title from their hotchpotch influences. “Our stuff’s like a collage and we’re trying to jigsaw it all together,” say the band “The songs on the EP are meant to be loose but compact. It ties together as a bunch of different little stories; Junkyard Jazz, a messy love.” Pre-order the Junkyard Jazz EP now https://trudy.lnk.to/rtb-D
‘Twist it, Shake it, Rock & Roll’ lunges and surges right from the offset and is an excellent place to get to know the off-kilter sound that makes Trudy and the Romance ones to watch for the coming months.
