90% The Line of Best Fit Transcending the folk rock genre has long been a feature of Trembling Bells’ work over the past ten years.
90% Soundblab I mean, “Baby Lay Your Burden Down” from Abandoned Love certainly owed something to the pop stylings of “Baby Don’t Get Hooked on Me.” But that was all right because as The Stones sang, “It’s only Rock ‘n’ Roll.
80% The Guardian How strange it is that folk music is so often hampered by politeness, when its subjects are life, death, murder and sex.
80% God is in the TV Six albums and a decade in, Trembling Bells are still imbued with a strong sense of mischief and ambition.
