Introducing: Trudy and the Romance

Get to know the Liverpool trio championed by the likes of Steve Lamacq...


The Liverpool trio currently making waves thanks to their cinematic indie sound and their persuasive live shows.   

The Sound 

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.

The Story

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

Essential Tracks 

‘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.
