Those cheeky Lost Trends chappies are back after a bit of a sabbatical. They were definitely missed, but oh boy are they back with a bang in the shape of their new EP “Time”. Click here to check it out on Spotify. It features four exciting slabs of dance infused rock; “Time”, “Everything”, “Things You Could Be” and “Stay The Same”. Back in those heady days of the late 80s and early 90s when Clubs were king and illegal raves were prolific these tracks would have been mammoth hits and probably each the subject of a 12 inch single with extended dance remixes by the likes of Paul Oakenfold, Underworld, the Chemical Brothers and Andrew Weatherall to name just a few! The title track is for me the finest tune from a great selection. It has a powerful funk vibe and uses uplifting jangly guitars to the max. I would challenge even the most sedentary of people not to dance to this, you will fail! In a parallel universe this would be hogging the airwaves and it should be in this universe too. Rusty’s vocals are on top form in “Everything” which makes me think of what Radiohead or Muse might sound like if they went full on disco. There is no let up on the wonderful sonic attack from a band totally on top of their game. “Things You Could Be” reminds me of the best U2 remixes with some guitar work that I believe the Edge would be proud of. “Stay The Same” rounds this EP off perfectly and these tracks showcase a band that I reckon are now fully equipped to take on a Festival set. Can we at least get them on the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading/ Leeds? They have the ability to bring the house down. It is so good to have Lost Trends back!
