Paul Smith and Peter Brewis - Trevone

Let’s head north-east to give the latest track to come from two of the region’s most recognisable voices a listen.

Paul Smith of Maximo Park and Peter Brewis of Field Music have been stalwarts on the indie scenes Newcastle and Sunderland (respectively) for some time now, but putting the two frontmen together has seen them come out with a sound that is unfamiliar territory for both.

‘Trevone’ is a delightful piece of chamber-pop that builds with an enchanting lead vocal from Smith – utilising musings from his travel writing – before being set free to roam in regal orchestral magnificence.

What’s more – despite both men having brought out albums with other projects recently (Maximo Park and School of Language) – we don’t have long to wait until they release their debut collaborative album Frozen By Sight on November 17th via Memphis Industries.

See below for upcoming UK live dates.

December 18th – Band on the Wall, Manchester
