Where Trudy and the Romance’s previous incarnations might have fully embraced the last word of that moniker, on latest single ‘My Baby’s Gone Away’, they’re plunging into a darker side.
Far from the hand-holding waltz of past singles, ‘My Baby’s Gone Away’ is a blustery nighttime stroll, frontman Oliver Taylor drunkenly yelping at the stars. “She knows she’s been fucking around,” they collectively scream of that titular ‘baby’, Trudy’s doe-eyed romanticism swapped out for a bitter, broken-hearted sentiment while their instruments melt and creak beneath them. It’s proof - not that it was needed - that there’s more to this trio than just sop and doo-wop.
