Trampolene’s Track ‘The Gangway’ Is A Love-Letter To Growing Up In Swansea – Listen

“‘The Gangway’ is a small derelict lane in Swansea… We used to hang out there, playing Spin The Bottle with a bottle of panda pops, or kicking about old knackered footballs with the orange inner tubes bursting out. A miss-spent youth, you might say…”.

So says Trampolene frontman Jack Jones about their new track. If you’re thinking to yourself he’s got a poetic lilt to his words, you’d be right – Jack was The Libertines “tour poet” recently, taking to the stage and rattling off a few pieces of his work before Peter, Carl and co came on.

‘The Gangway’, premiered below, riffs on that same kind of aesthetic. It sounds a little like the kind of thing the Manics might have come up with on their more recent albums – subdued, but not necessarily doom-laden:
