Trash Kit

[Upset The Rhythm; TBC]

If recent gigs and the singles ‘Fame’ and ‘Cadets’ are anything to go by, this self-titled debut from London trio Trash Kit promises to be one of the most scrappily enjoyable and original albums of the year. Recorded in just a few days, these 17 songs are said to be full of chaotic energy, African and Eastern rhythms, blunt honesty and inventive, often wordless, vocals from Rachels Aggs and Horwood, some tracks rushing by in an instant (hence the total running time of just 26 minutes) while others allow a little pause for breath. Bassist Ros Murray brought along fellow ex-Electrelane member Verity Susman to play a bit of saxophone, and there’s violin in there too. Expect to hear much more about these three ladies in the near future. The album is expected in May.
