Have You Heard? Trust Fund - Essays to write

Trust Fund - Essay to write

Ellis Jones’ latest dreams fondly of the end of exam period, when lives will be sorted and problems solved.

Trust Fund revealed the first taster of debut album ‘No-one’s coming for us’ at the tail end of 2014 in the form of the blistering ‘Cut me out’. Morsel number two arrived this week with the quieter, more reflective cut ‘Essay to write’. The track revolves around Ellis Jones’ chorus-drenched guitar line that swaps ‘Cut me out’’s crunch for wooziness, dreaming fondly of the end of exam period, when lives will be sorted and problems solved.

‘Essay to write’ shows Trust Fund at their most explorative, and demonstrates their evolution from the beginning. From Jones and a four-track, to a collective built of interchanging multi-talented friends, Trust Fund take on many styles and guises throughout ‘No-one’s coming for us’. Jones’ lyrics might blur into obscurity during verses full of reverb, but when they’re exposed in the latter half of the track, they’re delivered with such youthful naivety that maybe, just maybe, things will be alright after that final exam.
