Swansea City rockers TRAMPOLENE, who continue to deliver electrical shockers with their unique combination of garage rock, kitchen-sink poetry and acoustic heartbreakers, release a new four-track, ‘Beautiful Pain EP,’ on Friday the 7th July.
The title song ‘Beautiful Pain,’ was premiered on Huw Stephens Radio One show on Monday and is the follow-up to ‘Divided Kingdom’ which crashed into the charts in the UK, France, Netherlands, Lithuania & Ukraine. ‘Beautiful Pain’ was mixed by Cenzo Townshend (Jamie T / Everything Everything), is available now when you pre-order ‘Beautiful Pain EP’ from iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/beautiful-pain-ep/id1239367002?app=iTunes
‘Beautiful Pain EP’ was recorded at Ray Davies’ Konk Studios in London’s Muswell Hill and produced by TRAMPOLENE singer/guitarist Jack Jones & engineer Josh Green. Lead song ‘Beautiful Pain,’ is about the desperate hope, crushing pain and the heart-mangling joy of falling in love, Mills & Boon it ain’t; ‘She Sits With Me,’ is about the balm of the proximity of a loved one when you are in mental turmoil (an ode to Jack’s childhood pet mongrel Maddie!); ‘Saving My Life in A&E’ is a party political broadcast on behalf of the TRAMPOLENE Party, a heartfelt poem dedicated to the NHS; the final song is a passionate and beautiful rending of the Smiths masterpiece ‘Please Please Please.’
TRAMPOLENE have toured continuously throughout 2015 and 2016 with stand out supports with The Libertines, Buzzcocks, Peter Doherty, Reverend & The Makers, The Enemy, Pretty Vicious, Catfish & The Bottlemen and Carl Barat & The Jackals.
