Our Sound Music favourites The Trusted returned earlier this month with their latest single 'Burning The Night' - arguably their finest release to date. A band that pushed that forge their own boundaries, 'Burning The Night' sees the band utilise a 5/4 time signature to help create an immersive soundscape.
The Trusted have a knack for fusing New Wave and modern indie-rock to create masterpieces - this new single demonstrates that to the max, cementing their place as scene trailblazers. The track opens in intriguing fashion before the soothing, melodic vocal leads us on an intense journey of late-night irrational jealousy. The chorus is anthemic as expected and is the icing on the cake. Described by frontman Tom Cunningham as: "it's about a song about coping with "ate-night restlessness and irrationality, revealing the emotions that lurk in the shadows.", there is a real depth ad intelligence to the song writing on display.
Hailing from Southend-On-Sea and forming in their mid-teens, The Trusted are now firm staples of the indie-rock scene in the UK. 'Burning The Night' was recorded and mixed by Rees Broomfield (Asylums, Kate Nash) at SS2 Studios and the finished product reflects the band's talent and vision perfectly.
Influenced by The 1975, The Clash and Elvis Costello (though they are far from copyists), The Trusted have combined elements of the aforementioned to form their own trailblazing sound. Stellar previous releases 'Vellichor' and 'Doomsday' make for a recommended foray into their back catalogue too. The Trusted are seeing out a momentous 2023 with a moment of brilliance with 'Burning The Night'.
