Described as "raw, unpolished talent...backed by squealing guitar riffs"
, the London-based three-piece are about to release new single Hard Times For Dreamers
, ahead of a date at The Hope & Ruin
, in Brighton.
The single was recorded at Ray Davies' Konk Studios in London's Muswell Hill.
Says Jack: "I remember catching the 3A or 2B bus into town every Saturday to doss around with my friends.
"We'd maybe bunk into the cinema or push each other off the high diving board at the swimming pool… anything to beat the boredom.
"The buses back home were about as regular as Halley's comet so I had plenty of time to ponder the universe.
"There was a really lovely, but mad, old lady selling The Evening Post and she used to shout 'Soooo Soooo Get Your Evening Post'…and it stuck in my head.
The origin of 'Hard Times For Dreamers' comes from that time. It's a kind of love song in some ways as well...not sure who to, mind ...maybe to our way of life...fans...or my wife, who I haven't met yet."
Trampolene's work ethic saw them set-up as a 24/7 creative work factory, like Andy Warhol's Factory, where no internet was allowed, and they invited artists to come round and share ideas and talk about songwriting, poetry, painting and society in general.
Jack roadied for Palma Violets and the Strypes in 2013. Although Jack suffers from Crohn's disease resulting in regular hospital appointments for treatment, the band began to play gigs across the country, gaining support from people such as Ray Davies, journalists Pete Paphides and Caitlin Moran, and musicians Carl Barât and Nick Hodgson.
'Hard Time For Dreamers' is released on Friday 27th April, and Trampolene play the Hope & Ruin, Brighton, on Wednesday 11th April 2018. For more info CLICK HERE ..
