Lo-fi pop rockers TRASH are back with their third release to date – Give Up. Give Up is a voyeuristic narration of teenage lust, blistering in dream pop. The track follows a guy navigating his conflicted mind between adolescent boredom and toilsome girls; “She’s getting sick and tired of you, if you don’t give a fuck someone else will.’” – Before being anaphorically and coldly told to give up.
Luckily for fans of the slacker quartet, they’ll be giving it away for free to anyone that signs up to their mailing list. Fans will receive the track on 12th August – a week before its official release. Following rhapsodize reviews of their EP Urban Glow, TRASH toured in March with several of their shows selling out. So it’s no doubt that Give Up is discordant, slick and speckled with brittle euphoric guitar riffs.
