The Trusted’s relationship dates back to their early days at school. First to develop a bond over music were guitarist Dale and lead singer Tom, forming a writing partnership that shared a common appreciation of a strong melody, which is evident throughout the atmospheric, edgy pop they create. It wasn’t long before the duo was joined by Fin on bass and Dave on drums. The band shared an enthusiasm for 21st-century Brit-rock lead by the likes of Catfish and the Bottlemen and The 1975, as well as classic late ‘70s new-wave icons such as The Clash and Elvis Costello. That fusion of punk energy and post-punk storytelling along with an ear for a serious commercial hook made an indelible yet subtle watermark on The Trusted’s musical output. Possessing an irresistible charm, an undeniable wit, and an infectious personality shining through their adventurous brand of youthful punked-up indie rock, The Trusted are both a refreshing tonic and a barrage of fireworks rolled into one. Seamlessly switching from mellow, artfully constructed melodic thoughtfulness into wild, explosive moments of raucous brilliance, there’s a surprise around every corner within The Trusted’s music and songwriting, all executed with an undeniable measure of passion and grit.
