“Trudy sound like they’re stumbling into greatness” – DIY
Ladies and gentlemen, hot off the block it’s the kids that pop your cotton socks off, Trudy baby. Hopeless, romantic Trudy.
These nowhere boys will leave you love drunk and weeping into your whiskey. With hollywood-tinged melodies and raucous guitar, they spit grit in the teeth of a Colgate grin. Trudy are comfy in a mix of Doo-Wop, 60s girl groups, The Beach Boys, The Strokes and Jonathan Richman.
Heartbroken ever since his first love frenched another guy, Olly picked up the guitar and began to pen pop tunes. His songs tell of his struggle being mean to women and regretting it later when he is lonely. Olly needed a band. Tipping a trolley full of trash in a strangers digs, Olly met bassist Lewis and before too long he found drums in childhood mucker Brad. They now live together in Liverpool.
In keeping with Trudy’s unshakeable habit for breaking hearts with complete disregard to the lonesome consequences, new chuune ‘Behave’ is a quarrelsome romp about mithering sweethearts who just won’t take the hint.
Both tracks produced and mixed by Spring King’s Tarek Musa, ‘Behave’ follows on from frisky debut ‘All My Love’ which grabbed the attention of some of the finest tastemakes: Gold Flake Paint, The Music Ninja, Neu DIY, We Are Raw Meat, Austin Town Hall and as a result spent some time trending on 22 tracks.
NME, DIY and Wonderland Magazine were quick to get involved naming ‘All My Love’ as track of the month as well as XFM’s ‘Shock of the New’.
‘Behave’ wades in to further thicken the plot, artwork by previous collaborator Hello Thunderpuss depicts the songs temperament in a slapstick, comic style, typical of her inimitable style.
The voice of the kids, if they did but know it.
