The Trembling

Seduce The Government

Top Quality Rock & Roll

The Trembling deliver on the promise of their one-track split with New Grenada, and this 6-track EP proves to be a stunningly exciting acquaintance with one of the more invigorating punk bands of late. Remaining just on the right side of annoying, The Trembling’s lo-fi punk is jagged and stabbed, offering fiery single-note guitar playing, aggressively gliding bass and some dynamically tense playing that perfectly captures the urgent potential of the band’s songs.

Despite being two-thirds male, The Trembling is abrasive and proud riot grrrl punk, angular and twitched music out on a crusade. From the brilliant garage of “Catch Up” to the frenzied “Words Are Getting Stuck,” The Trembling evokes visions of Bikini Kill, Pixies and the Clash, all the while carving out a beautifully angular world of their own.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
