With a Big Moon support slot this autumn and SXSW in the bag, Trudy and the Romance’s scurvy ascent has been as pestilent as the plague, infecting hearts and minds everywhere. Labelled ‘50s mutant pop’ by assorted members of the press, their previous single ‘He Sings’ sallied lecherously up to number 7 on the UK Spotify viral charts. Their freakbeat flavoured skiffle clearly strikes a chord with legions of mutant fans everywhere and is a broken bottle to the face of blind conformity. With more material in the works and more gigging before the year is out, whatever Trudy and the Romance are cooking up will be a drunken witch’s brew of lovesick sea shanties and rabble rousing ditties. To all those who thought the age of romance in music is long dead, Trudy and the Romance stand defiant as mutated specimens of a bygone era.
Arq is the new album of Par, project by Nacho Adda (Montevideo, Uruguay, 1983) based on experimental electronic music. While his previous works El Futuro (2013) and Ahí viene la Tormenta (2015) were more socially influenced, Arq is strongly marked by the modernist and rational concepts of modern architecture and its theoreticians. In this case, the producer attempts to translate these concepts to sounds and structures in 10 songs that make up the album. Preserving his experimental and minimalist nature, the album creates atmospheres that place the listener in different spaces and environments by using a dense or delicate, but always subtle, electronic sound palette.
