The track explores the depths of obsession in surprisingly anthemic fashion.
Delving into murky themes like obsession and unrequited love, ‘Marrow’, the latest single from UK indie rock outfit The Trusted might just pack the most depth and intrigue of anything that the talented band have released to date. The band have long been known for their heartfelt style and the catchy melodies, but this track feels a stylistic shift into a more new wave-influenced sound, creating a nice contrast to some of their more raw-edged and explosive releases.
The line between adoration and obsession is a thin one, and the devoted nature of the lyrics and the endearing charm of the vocals makes for a track that feels multi-faceted and anthemic throughout. The track feels creative and packed full of infectious appeal, but has the kind of gravity that comes with a track surrounding the theme of wanting to grow literally inseparable from someone else. The Trusted have established an incredible, beloved sound, and are now pushing it into more creative and daring territory both through their style and their songwriting, and are reaping the benefits of it thanks to both the consistency and variation of their output.
“Marrow is a song about obsession. We don’t usually dive into the realm of love songs, but we decided to give it a shot,” says lead singer Tom. “It’s probably our most direct tune to date. Marrow delves into the concept of wanting to get under someone’s skin, to become inseparable from their very being. The song embodies the essence of exaggerated affection, restlessness, and unyielding devotion,” he adds.
