Trust-Fund-Joanna-Gruesome-608x608
Welsh non-harpists Joanna Gruesome put out one of our favorite albums of 2013, the gritty garage effort Weird Sister. Now the band is back with news of an upcoming 12-inch split with U.K. pop act Trust Fund, which will feature three tracks from each band.
 
Jerome (Liar) is one of Joanna Gruesome’s contributions to the that split, a track that artfully balances toothy twee with unexpected wallops of scratchy reverb. The 12-inch is out in September on HHBTM in the U.S. and the band’s own label, Reeks Of Effort, in the U.K. Listen to the track and check out Joanna Gruesome’s slew of upcoming tour dates below.
