For some reason, the south has always had a pretty solid amount of emo touched punk music. Maybe it’s the stifling manner of the fact that all of the creatives are open-minded in a part of the country that’s run by the closed minded. That’s what it feels like in places like Houston where the emo punk sounds of Trembler comes from. Trembler plays often in D.I.Y. spaces to a youthful crowd, where they’re all screaming along with the vocals by the end of the set. On their debut single “Heaven” ahead of their album release coming sooner than later, the four piece gives you plenty to scream along to without getting too emotional in the process.
The open throated sound of the guitar that opens things up is met with a soft voiced vocal before the song is met with a driving tread. Trembler gets heavy and screamy fast but doesn’t lose your attention. It has plenty of punk nuances but it’s essentially an emo song where Trembler adds their own touch to the genre. The loud quiet loud structure is put on its head here, creating a sound that should impress anyone who hears it.
You can stream “Heaven” on all streaming sites and you can buy in in all digital music stores including Bandcamp. Trembler’s debut album will be made available April 01. You can see them in person April 05 at Lola’s in Ft. Worth, TX until April 16 at Insomnia Gallery in Houston, TX. A complete list of their upcoming performances can be found here.
