Trembling Bells are a psych folk phenomenon. The Glasgow based quintet have released five albums since 2008, all to unanimous critical acclaim. Their debut album Carbeth received album of the month nominations in Uncut, Observer and Rolling Stone magazines and the group have earned praise from artists as diverse as Paul Weller, Stewart Lee and Joe Boyd.
Since their inception Trembling Bells have toured extensively around UK, Europe, North and South America including shows in New York, Sao Paolo and SXSW. The past few years have seen the band go from success to success, with a slew of summer festivals under their belts in support of their fifth album, The Sovereign Self, including a stellar performance at Glastonbury which gained them ‘Album of the Week’ by Alexis Petridis of The Guardian.
Now they bring their psych folk to Liverpool Philharmonic with their brand new album Dungeness. The influences that seeped into Dungeness are perhaps not what you’d expect. Many of the tracks feel like the end of the earth too, their folk rock sensibility acquiring a sweeping, apocalyptic grandness – both in sound and lyrics. Though it hearkens back to the ‘70s psychedelic heyday of Fairport Convention and Trees, it’s also, as comedian Stewart Lee puts it in his sleeve notes, ‘heroically now’.
A talent that hops genres and drops jaws
