TRUDY AND THE ROMANCE - JUNKYARD JAZZ EP

Junkyard Jazz is a thirteen minute heartwarming nostalgia and playfulness trip. Expect Trudy and the Romance to be the next big thing.

Fresh from their UK headline tour, Trudy and the Romance charm the socks off of us with Junkyard Jazz. We're head over heels in just five tracks. 

 

Packed full of acute sensitivity (think Maccabees) and eye-brow-raising suggestions that Trudy and the Romance are one of the freshest, most exciting bands around, we sure are being spoiled just as we thought this year of music was drawing to a close.

Olly Taylor’s sweetly vulnerable yet utterly captivating vocals take precedence for the most part of the record. ‘Ruff Ryder’ is smooth, confident and hints to their self-confessed surreality - what Taylor describes as “real-meets-cartoon”. ‘Twist It, Shake It. Rock & Roll’ parades an adolescent cheek akin to early Libertines, whilst ‘Junkyard Cat’ pairs a poignant longing with their loveable juvenility.

Beautiful single ‘Is There A Place I Can Go’ is spot-on in bringing the brief and brilliant record to a close. Gentle sincerity and enchanting words melt our hearts whilst the track sways delicately from a heartfelt, acoustic opening to the lilting hook.

 

You can see Trudy and the Romance at their biggest headline gig to date, at London's The Lexington, 26/01/18.

STALKER RESOURCES:

NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK, BUT LEAVE A COMMENT ANYWAY

Run the Jewels come in swinging with their fourth instalment RTJ4, a potent protest of an album taking a knee against systematic racism and the government elite.

Sex Cells are comfortably a lawlessness unto themselves and debut album, That's Life cements the fact.

We saw the incredible Molchat Doma in London as part of their Storm Over Europe Tour Part II, which (with almost every show sold out) saw them doing exactly that.
