Southend-on-Sea indie pop/indie rock four-piece The Trusted have revealed their new single “Marrow“.
Tapping into the realms of obsession and unrequited love, the band offers a fresh take on their signature sound, delivering a track brimming with heartfelt lyrics, restless melodies, and a sheer sense of total devotion. ‘Marrow’ delves into the complexity of genuine affection as well as the immense desire to become an intricate part of someone’s world.
Lead singer, Tom Cunningham, describes the track as a desperate indie new wave inspired anthem, which resonates with the discontented hearts yearning for a profound connection. Tom explains:
“Marrow is a song about obsession. We don’t usually dive into the realm of love songs, but we decided to give it a shot. It’s probably our most direct tune to date. Marrow delves into the concept of wanting to get under someone’s skin, to become inseparable from their very being. The song embodies the essence of exaggerated affection, restlessness, and unyielding devotion.”
‘Marrow’ showcases The Trusted’s ability to capture raw emotions and translate them into an infectious indie anthem. With their keen sense of melody and expert songwriting, the band seamlessly weaves together heartfelt lyrics and dynamic instrumentals, resulting in a track that is as captivating as it is relatable.
The Trusted are Dave Batchelor, Dale Holt-Mead, Fin Cunningham and Tom Cunningham. Initially starting out in secondary school, the band bonded over their mutual appreciation of a strong melody and atmospheric, edgy pop. Sharing an enthusiasm for 21st century Brit-rock led 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, The Trusted thrive off their unique fusion of post-punk energy and storytelling.
Known for their mind-blowing live sets, the band have performed at prestigious venues across the UK, as well as two successful European Tours.
