Bustin’ out of Liverpool, UK, Trudy and The Romance are ready to woo with the mutant 50s pop and self-declared alligator rock-n-roll of their eagerly-anticipated album Sandman. Today (22nd Jan) they preview its first cut, ‘The Original Doo Wop Spacemen.’

The new single drives forth the dreamboat pop of their recent “Junkyard Jazz” EP through its Spector rhythms, whilst incorporating the album’s nods to Jonathan Richman, Louis Prima, Brian Wilson’s wall of sound, film composers Henry Mancini and Bernard Herrmann, and the golden age of Disney. “We directed this like a blockbuster, with characters and a story,” Trudy’s singer Olly explains. “We worked with a pianist, 1940s Disney choir, county pedal steel guitar player, film score violinist and harpist. It’s heart-warming and gently creeps up on you. It’s not tugging but just kind-of-there; Alligator Rock’n’roll!”

Recorded with producer David Pye (Wild Beasts), Sandman draws the listener further into the trio’s colourful world, and follows the latest escapades of its central protagonist, little Johnny, and his inner turmoil. “It’s a coming of age tale about asking for your innocence back. It’s a breakup album and loosely based on the hero’s journey,” Olly says. Rocking and reeling through dreamy harmonies and dazzling guitars it’s everything good pop music should be – catchy, clever and brimming with curiously wonderful characters in Trudy’s inimitable realistic-cartoon narrative.

Including a highlight summer festival performance at Green Man, the band’s live show offers ‘a clutch of weak-knee ballads and twisting hits’. Their recent biggest headline show to date, a sell-out at London’s Moth Club lays down a marker for what’s to come. They’re set to let their unique doo-wop sound loose in Austin, Texas, as an official SXSW showcase act for 2019. There’s also a Huw Stephen’s Maida Vale session under their belts, and ‘Artist of the Week’ recognition from Steve Lamacq.

‘The Original Doo Wop Spacemen’ is out January 22nd with debut album ‘Sandman’ to follow in Spring 2019.
