New Music Of The Day: Trudy And The Romance – ‘Sandman’

Fresh from a well received support slot on The Big Moon’s nationwide jaunt, Trudy and The Romance have just shared their new single ‘Sandman’. Putting a label on Liverpool group at this point is somewhat tricky, purely because the group are deft at shifting their sound on each release. On ‘Sandman’ the lads open with a jangling riff reminiscent of The Cramps, but it quickly mutates into a ramshackle indie anthem in the vein of the Libertines. That may sound messy, but it’s resulted in a remarkably cohesive and catchy effort.

Where they go next could see them adopt a totally new style, who knows – but whatever it turns out to be, it certainly sounds like it won’t be dull.

Trudy and The Romance will play the following dates:

02 Academy 2, Liverpool (Nov 18) w/Honeyblood

The Finsbury, London (Nov 25)
