TRASHLEY


Sometimes I listen to shit and I just think that the band knows something I don't, that somehow they have the inside scoop on life and sound and that's why I can't stop listening to them. TRASHLEY do this to me - there's a secret they aren't letting the rest of us in on, but they seem to have the formula for aural earworms perfected. The vocals remind me of FUZZBOX and the keyboards certainly serve as further justification for that comparison, but the rest of the music is much more in line with catchy garage punk...or maybe with some weird proto-pre-indie band like VASELINES that NIRVANA would have celebrated even though no one had ever heard them. It confuses me....both that it exists and that I like it so much. TRASHLEY...laid back and smart and I can't get enough.

i like nirvana. i also like synthpop like depeche mode. listening and liking new order is a given to all of us hardcore punk kids. i wonder if you also like ERASURE? you can make fun of me in here because i will admit that i also like them. hahaha. i mean i am looking for a redemption in here because a friend of mine laugh at me discovering this.

"Chains Of Love" is an undeniable pop classic!

Funny to see a Parisian band on Terminal Escape. Trashley is a great live band by the way. I had never thought of them in those terms though... You should check the synth player/singer's former band, called 10lec6, which sounded a bit like the Fatal Microbes but with a more experimental feel. I am pretty sure they had an Ep.
