TRUDY AND THE ROMANCE
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’ . Their latest single ‘ Sandman’ also sat at #7 on Hype Machine and helped them cap off their year as the fourteenth most blogged artists of 2016.
Following an incredible response to their self titled EP in 2016, New Luna are on course for an explosive end to the year. A display of the possibilities still offered by guitar, bass, drums and an idiosyncratic frontman, what impresses most is the band’s off-kilter approach to pop songwriting.
