Now onto their sixth EP, it feels like Trampolene will never release a full album. And honestly, whilst it would be a lovely thing to have, the shorter format seems to work so well for this band and at a rate of a couple a year, they’re giving us more songs than most manage through the traditional cycle. ‘Beautiful Pain’, the latest addition to their collection, is out now.
From the beginning, Trampolene have never stuck to one style – with each EP or ‘pocket album’ comes a mix of energetic indie rock, gentle acoustic pieces and spoken word poems. More recently though, they’ve starting mixing these diverse elements within the same songs. Latest single Beautiful Pain starts off sounding like one of singer Jack’s solo tracks, just simple guitar and his soft voice; gradually the rest of the band join in, though through this evolution it retains much more delicacy than their full-band songs usually have. The title track of a forthcoming EP, this song is available now with the remaining three released on July 7th.
