trunkweed is a young, flowering band founded in baltimore, md during the summer of 2014. they have been heavily circulating the diy scenes across the u.s. ever since, touring constantly from coast-to-coast as well as a ton of canadian dates. the band began as a bedroom project, which honed the typical "lofi" sound but in a surf pop-esque outlet. while much of the album is still a mystery (only 1 song has been released so far), it's clear though that their time on the road has drastically evolved their sound to a new level that is fuzzy, sad, fast, aggressive, and raw/honest while still holding pop foundations.
"This trio has already evolved from a sort of stoned-er Real Estate on 2014's "Days Of Haze," to a more confessional Cloud Nothings on last year's "Trunkweed Live, Man" to a self-aware, slightly literary noisemakers on their upcoming album. They're also kind of troublemakers, which if we can get old on you for a moment, is sorely lacking from little rock bands these days, so worried about image and being "chill." "
