If there’s anything Chesterfield’s TRASH have proved in the past twelve months, it’s that they’re a million miles away from being as rubbish as their name suggests. Instead, Daniel Longmore, Tom Barton, Evan Martin and Bradley Weston have spent the past year touring with Splashh, Rat Boy and Clean Cut Kid. That’s a combination that also speaks to the subtle nods the quartet give to scuzzy elements and scuzzy lo-fi vibes on top of their indie-pop foundations.
In other words, they’re a bit of a versatile bunch, and now TRASH they’re set to distil those different facets into a new EP this summer, which is being released in time for appearances at festivals such as Tramlines and Y Not. Before they get there though, they have to deal with a bad head. On ‘Migraines’ the band are prevented from going out, but it’s not because they’ve had more than a few cold ones. Instead they imply that it’s more of a stress headache, saying in the chorus that these problems just aren’t worth their time.
Luckily, it’s all set to upbeat and charmingly fuzzy guitar riffs, with a few “woah-oh” sing-along moments that’ll help you forget your worries. Migraines aren’t a lot of fun at all, and TRASH know that. But they’ve also delivered a buoyant slice of indie-pop that you’ll wish lasted as long as those pesky headaches.
