Review: Trampolene’s new single ‘The Boy that life forgot’


By Lloyd Wakeling, Journalist, and Desh Kapur, Photographer-Rock At Night Manchester

REVIEW of single “The boy that life forgot” by The Trampolenes.

From the very beginning of this song you realise it is cut from a very different cloth than previous Trampolenes offerings. The simple, yet atmospheric piano entre, sets the next few minutes up perfectly and succinctly. Carrying a mood that is both pleading lyrically and in parts inconsolable musically, it combines the two beautifully, and with the instantly recognisable base sound and vocals providing the evidence of who we are listening to, the production carries the song along without overdoing any part of it. From the backing vocals to the restrained guitar rifts, it plays around your head like all good songs do, staying in there like the friend it will soon become. This shows a maturity in the Trampolenes song writing and I for one applaud it with open ears!



Trampolene will be touring over the next few months including shows with: The Libertines & Liam Gallagher in December, Musicians against Homelessness with Cabbage in November and Jack playing lead guitar for Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres in November:
