You’re walking back after a night out, drunkenly eating your chips and yelling at the top of your lungs – yet, your night is still lacking that one touch, that one space is filled by Trudy & The Romance.
The Liverpool trio bargain for cheeky, bitter love songs. Whilst some romanticized tracks are full of desirous eyes, Trudy confess to pungent, heart-broken sentiments instead.
Their enthralling pieces taking on a story of their own, Oliver, Lewis and Brad have formed one of the most exciting outfits to come this year. Read below as we get to grips with the band.
For someone just discovering you guys, how would you sum up your sound for them?
Nostalgic, trashy, melancholy, 50’s mutant pop
How did the name of the band come about?
We used to just be called Trudy, but we nearly got sued by this old band for it so we had to change it. Not heard fuck all about them since
Best and worst nickname you’ve ever had?
We seemed to get Turdy and the Romance quite a bit. We’ll have that as best and worst.
What was the first record you ever bought?
Probably like American Idiot by Green Day or something
The last song you were listening to?
Moonlight on the River by Mac Demarco, super sexy
If you’re ever feeling down, what’s your go to pick me up?
Top 3 moments you’re still to tick off the bucket list?
Bungee jumping, swimming with sharks, headlining Glasto
Your ultimate guilty pleasure?
Don’t really believe in ’em. As Dave Grohl says:
“I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. If you fucking like something, like it. That’s what’s wrong with our generation: that residual punk rock guilt, like, “You’re not supposed to like that. That’s not fucking cool.” Don’t fucking think it’s not cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic.” It is cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic”! Why the fuck not? Fuck you! That’s who I am, goddamn it! That whole guilty pleasure thing is full of fucking shit”
Where should everyone be on the 29th of May?
Broadcast, baby, of course!
