Southend-on-Sea indie pop/indie rock four-piece The Trusted have shared a new video for their latest single “Terrible Fight“.
The song is part of our current playlist and came out last month. Grab it here.
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.
Speaking about it, lead singer Tom Cunningham said:
“Terrible Fight is a song about being metaphorically beaten up. Part of growing up, is realizing that ‘life’ is basically an emotional/ psychological boxing ring. Whether it’s heartbreak, politics, or loss, it kind of feels like we are all being hit from all sides. I wanted it to be a song about being knocked over by all these heavy punches as well as our ability to just keep moving forward.“

The Trusted are Southend-on-Sea natives Dave Batchelor, Dale Holt-Mead, Fin Cunningham and Tom Cunningham. Initially meeting and 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.
