By The Trade
For the last two years, The Trade has been gradually building up their fan base with a series of tours all over the UK. Their first single 'Fight Club' is the perfect example of how The Trade are diamonds in the rough just waiting to dazzle the UK. It is a brilliant choice for a first single; edgy, fresh and performed with almost swaggering confidence.
Ross Milne's wonderful gravelly style of vocals launch the song to a gentle start before slamming into a speedy and anthemic melody that would definitely get the crowds going at a live show. The chorus has an absolutely killer bass line, catchy hook and fists will be punched into the air throughout.
One thing that strikes me is it is very hard to pigeon-hole this group. If we took Flea from R.H.C.P, Dave Grohl from The Foo Fighters and Alex Turner from Arctic Monkeys and asked them to create a song together, then 'Fight Club' is a fair approximation of what the result would be. The entire track is a combination of different styles all cleverly incorporated into four minutes of gutsy and mould-breaking indie rock with a twist.
The Trade have already sold over two thousand copies of their demo album, and with their new album 'Lie In The Dark' due for release this June, this interesting quad could be the new kids on the block who set summer 2010 on fire!
