The rising Southend-On Sea based young and exciting indie rock band The Trusted released their mesmerizing single 'Marrow' last month to great acclaim. The four-piece are trailblazers of a new wave of independent music that is growing throughout the UK, with a growing reputation of also being a great live band.
'Marrow' is a tale of of obsession and unrequited love, delivered with an honesty and passion from frontman Tom Cunningham that is difficult to ignore. Of the song, Tom said: "'Marrow' is a desperate indie new wave inspired anthem that delves into the concept of wanting to become inseparable from someone's very being." He continued: "It's probably our most direct tune to date. Marrow delves into the
concept of wanting to get under someone's skin, to become inseparable from their very being. The song
embodies the essence of exaggerated affection, restlessness, and unyielding devotion."
Emotionally raw, the band's ability to craft something special is evident here. Not willing to be typecast in one particular sound, The Trusted really have slightly changed direction with a track that is a welcome addition to their growing catalogue that includes a previous favourite of ours, 'Vellichor'.
Recorded, produced and mixed by Rees Broomfield of SS2 Studios (Aylums, Kate Nash), 'Marrow' grabs the listeners attention immediately from the sound of the introductory keys. The chords changes deliver a certain melancholy while the vocals are delivered with authenticity and confidence. The band are influenced by The 1975 amongst others and there is an element of Matt Healy's song-writing style on display that doesn't take away from The Trusted's own pioneering sound.
The Trusted have known each other since their school years and they have formed into a band that are confident songwriters and performers. Their previous releases have garnered praise from ourselves we had the pleasure of hosting the band in Manchester month. Other outlets including Clout, Earmilk and Clash Magazine have also heaped praise on the band's music.
