2019 Singles

Mistrusted – Polemic (Review)

West Midlands based Mistrusted are a trio that are doing things completely in their own realm. With a goal and contentment to still be in the section that involves “edgy arrangements that set it apart from many of their indie/grunge peeps”, they are doing exactly what says on the tin. After releasing their debut album “From The Shadows” in March 2019, the album accumulated years of recording with Ryan Pinson of RML Studios. Now returning with their final release of 2019, “Polemic” features angst, punk vibes and a whole lot of energy.

As a different approach in comparison to previous releases, there’s something about “Polemic” that stands out from the crowd. With a fun-filled nature but still holding a deep meaning, the vibrant aura is electrifying and you can just imagine the mosh pit from here. On the track, the band had this to say: “The song is a reaction against politicians and authoritarianism. It contains thinly veiled metaphors about servitude and it wouldn’t be unreasonable to assume the recent political milieu in the UK has influenced the lyrics.”

Score: 3/5
