Liverpool “mutant-pop” act Trudy and the Romance are back with 'Angel', their first new music in three years.

Following the band’s 2019 debut album Sandman, 'Angel' is a mellow slice of Americana that’s part Springsteen and part country. It’s inspired by country icon Tom T. Hall’s 1968 track That’s How I Got To Memphis, and in particular the lyric “I’ve got to find her and find out the trouble she’s in”.

Speaking about 'Angel', frontman Oliver Taylor described it as being “an adventure toward country pop and Americana’s stadium rock” as well as “a song about empathy - I hope the listener will feel inspired by that strength and compassion.

“True love triumphs mistakes and regret, and gives you a place back home. Angel celebrates this.”
