WHO are they?
TRASH are Daniel Longmore (vocals, guitar), Tom Barton (bass), Evan Martin (guitar) and Bradley Weston (drums). New single Migraines, taken from their upcoming self-titled EP and produced by Alex Greaves (Nave Studios), is out now via Clue Records.
“We’re four friends and music naturally brung us together” says Dan. “When we play a show it’s essentially a night out but we get to go on stage and perform for 30 minutes and then we drink whatever’s on the rider. It keeps us sane and lets us express our feelings. Awww.”
WHAT is the inspiration behind their songs?
“We write songs about love, sex, bordem, hypochondria, escapism and youth and all the issues and joys that come with it. We try and make the songs as explicit as possible so that they’re obvious and relatable. The music is guitar music, it’s rock and roll rolled in a layer of sweet pop. Awww.”
WHERE are they from?
“We’re all from Chesterfield, England. It’s really good because it has a Primark and there’s not many around. It also has a Macdonalds which is really great. There’s nothing happening musically. Just bare classic rock cover bands whose lead singers work in construction.”
WHY are they called TRASH?
“Because we’re GROSS. The only reason someone would be asked to get in our tour van would be for punishment (farts)”. Awww.
