There’s a storm brewing over this year and in its eye is where you’ll find Trudy and the Romance, concocting a veritable witch’s brew of lovelorn sea shanties and mutant rockabilly pop for all the doo-wop digging rockers who thought these isles would never be hip and happening again.
Their march into infamy has not been a long one. Throughout the past year each successive release has earned them new acolytes in the press and on the wireless. They were part of DIY‘s class of 2017 as well as NME‘s round up of acts to explode this year. Strong support has come from Radio 1, Radio X, Beats 1 and 6Music (where they were Steve Lamacq’s artist of the week) and fashion tastemakers i-D have also sung their praise. Not content to claw their hooks in the media alone, Trudy and the Romance have caused a pestilential stir on the Spotify viral charts, clawing up to #7 with the salty six-stringed soul of ‘He Sings’.
“Sounding like a cross between Nick Cave and The Strokes… this track is an extraordinarily, upbeat” – The Independent
Trudy and the Romance play The Sunflower Lounge Birmingham on Thurs 16th November 2017. Tickets available here.
