The Trusted Show Their Mettle With ‘Eli’

It's a new single from the Southend-on-Sea risers...

The Trusted have shared their new single 'Eli'.

The band hail from Southend-on-Sea, and match crunching indie rock songwriting with soaring pop ambitions.

Reminiscent of those early 1975 bops, The Trusted infuse each release with an incredible sense of character.

New single 'Eli' is a textured, nuanced return, and it follows sessions in SS2 Studios alongside Rees Broomfield.

Mixed by Grammy nominated Andy Bradfield, the song deals with temptation and desire, with 'Eli' learning to save themselves.

In the words of The Trusted, this potent new single "is a song about losing your mind to your own temptations and desires. The song’s protagonist turns to a fictionalised Jesus/God type character (Eli) in thinking they will be able to save them. The protagonist comes to the realisation that the only way they can save their mind from self-destruction, is to do it themselves."

"It’s a song about revelations and guilt. We are each victims of our own flawed mind."
