Not comparing TRMRS to the Black Lips would just be weird, so I am getting that out of the way early. They are both rowdy bands who play music that is sort of punk but also sort of powerpoppy. Where this comparison ends is what makes TRMRS worth listening to. Their sound isn’t anything new and in terms of creativity there isn’t much going on, but TRMRS utilizes the fact that the group has two guitarists in a really interesting way. Their song, “Hello Self”, perfectly exemplifies this. As opposed there being a lead part and a rhythm part, the guitar parts intertwine in a captivating dialogue that forms the backbone of the song. TRMRS one of the most fun groups I’ve listened to in a while, and I appreciate how straightforward and simple their sound is.
UPDATE: The Hello Self music video is out now. Check it out!
