Indie-rock band The Trusted have recently released their brand-new single titled “Criminals.” The track is now available to stream on Spotify!
The Trusted consist of Dave Batchelor, Dale Holt-Mead, Fin Cunningham and Tom Cunningham. The band formed and bonded over similar music tastes and appreciation of atmospheric, edgy pop. The members have created their own, unique post-punk sound that sounds like no other. The story-telling within their lyrics is phenomenal, and the melodies and instrumentation is simply addictive.
“Criminals” has been described as their most emotional song that they have ever written. With this track, The Trusted wanted to experiment with new electronic textures and sounds – an experiment that was worth the risk. The combination of the electronic sound, strong vocals, and easy flowing lyrics, creates an extremely powerful and raw piece of music.
When talking about the single, the band have said that it is about “loss, heartbreak, guilt and self-absorption.” They also share that “It’s a sad and honest track, but at the same, it’s kind of beautifully uplifting.” The perfect description. Whilst it focusses on a rather sensitive subject, you can not help be feel good and comforted once you have listened to it.
“Criminals” is an easy song to appreciate and is impossible not to have on repeat – so make sure you go give it a listen. If you like what you hear and want to keep updated on what The Trusted are up to, can follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
