Album Review: Trash Boat – ‘Crown Shyness’


St. Albans, England natives Trash Boat return with their latest effort Crown Shyness, due for release on July 20th, 2018 via Hopeless Records.

Taking the scene by storm alongside fellow countrymen Boston Manor, Trash Boat exhibit further musical growth and have definitely avoided the dreaded sophomore slump on Crown Shyness.

A driving sound that is harder edged on the whole than the material on their previous album (2016’s Nothing I Write You Can Change What You’ve Been Through) characterizes Crown Shyness.  The exceptions to this are the title track and the album closer “Love, Hate, React, Relate”, which slow things down but are no less trenched in emotion than the rest of the record as lead singer Tobi Duncan holds nothing back.

Lead single “Shade” has been well received, racking up almost 500,000 streams on Spotify in a short time frame, which is indicative of the success the band will enjoy with Crown Shyness.
