Trudy and the Romance – “The Original Doo-Wop Spacemen”

Another impressive track from Trudy and the Romance arrives, with “The Original Doo-Wop Spacemen” capturing a number of the Liverpool act’s strengths — notably, a striking quivering lead that meshes beautifully with backing vocal harmonizing (“Mr. Sandman open up your eyes,”), as well as a timeless suaveness that treasures melodic hooks in addition to aesthetic. Aesthetically, they recall The Last Shadow Puppets’ merging of classic rock with glam and modern pop sentiments. This is a fantastic track with a lively structure and great melody.

I’ll certainly be looking forward to the band’s debut album Sandman, out on May 24th.
