Classic 50s style pop with twinges of delicious weirdness. Such is the particular sonic stew Liverpool trio Trudy and the Romance stir.

The band’s latest track, “He Sings,” rides sidewinding guitar patterns by Oliver Taylor and dynamic ryhtyms from Lewis Rollinson (bass) and Brad Mullins (drums).

Name: Olly
Band: Trudy and the Romance
Instrument(s): Guitar & vox

What sound(s) do you/your band make?

We sound galactic, romantic, raucous n raw. A sound that sets a sexy beat to the kids hearts.
Makes you wanna fall to you knees and scream I love your baby, forget about Charlie he doesn’t treat you right.

If you could have anything fall from the sky what would it be and why?

A girl from another planet.

When I was a kid I used to love to…

Play with my Lego and that shrimp between my Legos.

An embarrassing phase in my life was when…

My pants fell down at prom in front of my número uno and all the guys.

The 1st album I purchased:

Busted.

The last album I purchased:

Taxi Driver and Dumbo soundtracks for the car.

My biggest insecurity:

My big toe.

You can easily win me over by…

Food.

Sometimes when I feel sad I listen to The Beatles because it’s nice.

After a show people compliment me most on my…

Leg shakes.

Something most people don’t know about me is…

I’m dangerous.

The band (artist) that altered my perception on life is Jonathan Richman because of his lyrics and story telling.

If not for music I would probably…

Work nights at a hotel.

What are your favorite song lyrics?

“When there’s things to do not because you gotta
When you run for love not because you oughta
When you trust your friends with no reason notta
The joy I’ve named shall not be tamed and that summer feeling is gonna haunt you one day in your life”
“When even fourth grade starts looking good which you hated
And first grade’s looking good too
Overrated
And you boys long for some little girl that you dated
Do you long for her or for the way you were?
That summer feeling is gonna haunt you the rest of your life.”

“That Summer Feeling” by Jonathan Richman.
