“Criminals” is top-notch Killers-inspired alt.rock from UK band @TheTrusted

THE TRUSTED, “Criminals”

Following up their EP Love & Suicide, from which came “Wild Love” which I wrote about in the Fall, is “Criminals” by UK alt.rockers The Trusted.  The obvious comparison, because of their penchant for strong melodies, is The Killers, or perhaps more specifically Brandon Flowers.  But that’s where the similarities end, and The Trusted carve out their own niche with ease.  “Criminals” is definitely radio-worthy, with the melody-line being the highlight while Tom Cunningham’s anguished, sympathetic vocal provides the tough-love story.  Fans of Cage The Elephant, The Strokes, and Billy Talent will enjoy songs by The Trusted.
