The Trusted – “Burning The Night”


Emotively melodic rocker “Burning The Night” is a single released today from The Trusted, a band based in Southend-on-Sea, UK. An accessible production develops seamlessly from darker introspection into a more effervescent punch, alongside lyrics exploring “late-night restlessness and irrationality,” per lead singer Tom.

A nocturnal backing textural shimmer develops into twangy guitar momentum, easing into a moody vocal lead. “Crying since I fell out of bed,” they let out, adding to the audible sense of melancholic yearning and potential last-night regrets. Wordless vocal soaring and added guitar jangles converge with melodically memorable qualities thereafter as the steady vocal lead returns.

The “I feel like I’m lightyears from home,” line furthers the introspective quest for meaning following a night out, coming to a cathartic-feeling brightness upon the ensuing title-touting burst. Darkly intriguing initial rock soundscapes and a brighter, anthemic outpouring combine on this stellar success from The Trusted.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2023’ Spotify playlist.
