New Jersey based rockers, Trü have released a single entitled “Trouble” in anticipation of their debut, self titled release. The four track EP drops June 9th via Destroy All Monsters Records.
"Trouble" is a high energy melodic cut with a sound that could be described as a cross between Weezer and Angels and Airwaves. Instrumentally, the single alternates steadily between high drive and soft/pretty.
Vocally, the tone and style are consistently soft spoken throughout. It features a constant higher octave double above the lead vocal line that adds an airy, pretty quality to the overall vibe of the song that also makes the lyrics pop a little more.
The band describes their sound as “Sad music for sad people,” but nonetheless I think it feels quite good to listen to. There is a swinging flow to the track that you can comfortably sway or bob your head to.
