Produced by Trampolene with Josh Green, the title track from Trampolene's ‘Beautiful Pain EP’ (released July 7) is indeed beautiful; painful, not at all, to listen to anyway.
"You give me such a beautiful pain / God knows why I need it again / Why do I pick my body up off the floor / when giving in is the only cure" are the opening lines to the song, which was premiered on Huw Stephens Radio One show earlier this week. The Swansea boys know how to pull on the heartstrings, but if you were expecting a slushy ballad, you'd be wrong.
The pain and joy of falling in love lyrics are woven into a building rocker - complete with a 'bad ass guitar solo' in its latter half - that opens on a delicate note, but soon picks up with Jack Jones' rawly expressive vocal and a thumping bassline.
The lyrics are on the audio video's notes, so you can all sing along - which is no doubt what every Trampolene fan will be doing.
Aside from Trampolene playing festivals such as Glastonbury, Isle of Wight, Hope & Glory and Reading over the coming months, Jack Jones is also a member of Peter Doherty’s touring band, The Puta Madres, who will also be playing a number of festivals across Europe this summer. The full dates are:
