Since their inception, The Trepids have quickly grown from a rambunctious folk-punk group into a complex and versatile rock outfit.
Their first E.P “Quarter Life Crisis” was recorded entirely in-house, and provided the soundtrack to their early shows. Consistently performing across Melbourne, the band’s live performance developed - bringing with it new music, experimenting with more diverse sounds.
Their next release, ‘Venus’, showed a whole new side of the young band; with the influence of engineer and producer, Justin Ossher, lending a more indulgent sheen to their sound. However, the raw energy of The Trepids is still remarkably present within this new shimmering aesthetic.
Look anywhere that The Trepids occupy and you’ll likely find their mantra branded somewhere - peace, love, rock n roll. Not simply a catchy phrase, this an ethic that is evident in everything The Trepids do; their songs spread a message of personal growth and self-acceptance, the complexity of modern life, and a healthy distaste for the establishment - the way that a true rock band should. Their live shows are ecstatic, dynamic and unpredictable - with some moments that will have you screaming into the mosh and some that will have you swaying in a rhythmic trance, lost in a sea of acid doused guitar licks and uncontainable bass grooves.

"Groovy song. Bit of Neil Young and almost a bit of The Rentals. NZ band Letterbox Lambs had a similar vocal style too. Nice work!"
