There are two things Trudy don't seem to lack: humour and ambition. We talked to the band to check the hype.
3rd: Hi Trudy, I have heard you were in studio with Bill Ryder-Jones. How was it?
Trudy: Thanks for having us. That's right. We're all a big fan of Bill, he's smart and charming and he gets what we're doing. Time in the studio was great, it's always most fun when the instruments and vocals are DONE and DOWN, that's when we get to have a little play with fresh ideas. We worked under a short amount of time, so time was money baby.
"Just love and being bored"
3rd: Trudy's sound in one sentence? All My Love is your first single. What was the writing process like?
Trudy: Some people have said it sounds drunk. I think it's cool pop music. I remember stealing the guitar melody from something my dad always played on the garden. I added to it in a hundred different places, and remember getting really excited about the chorus when I was looking after my dads picture framers whilst he was away on holiday. The guy in the unit next door would come in and tell me he could hear cats screaming. There were no cats in the picture framers. I finished the song at home.
3rd: Your voice is a clear stand out. On Help Me Rhonda you sound like a soft King Krule. Did it come naturally?
Trudy: Thanks. Since I was 16 I've sang like it, I didn't sing before that. I think the tone came from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and the Wild Beasts, big fan at 16. Big fan of Mr Krule.
3rd: What do you want to write and sing about? American band Girls managed to churn out 3 brilliant records mostly about love, heartbreak and despair. Will Trudy be the British Girls?
Trudy: Just love and being bored. I'd like to branch out. Gonna be our own thing dawg.
3rd: Probably the best thing to do! What would you miss the most about northern England on a world tour?
Trudy: Family, friends and Stu from the Fenton Pub.
