Just Watch: Trudy & The Romance – The Original Doo-Wop Spacemen

Trudy & The Romance – The Original Doo-Wop Spacemen

Words: Megan Berridge

Have you ever had that feeling listening to music and it just provokes some kind of transcendental emotion? It really moves you? Well, Trudy And The Romance do that for me. They really make me yearn for that thing that makes the world go round and round…


Yeah and by the way, for you materialistic saddos, that thing is actually called LOVE.


Yes, I might be in a relationship, it’s true. But nothing seems to boil me down to the consistency of mush that Trudy manage to reduce me down to, like congealed milk. Just in time for the celebration of St. Valentine, the scouse trio release the dreamy-weamy, spacey-wacey video for their heart-melting single ‘The Original Doo-Wop Spacemen’.


Amidst the overlay of television static adding to the crisp and trademark vintage-ness of these Liverpool lovers, there is a story…of love I’m guessing…seeing as it’s Valentine’s day?


The video features four main characters, a spaceman, a couple and folklore celebrity the Sandman (who, in this case, is a monster made from videotape). The couple sip at a milkshake out of paper straws (nice touch guys), the spaceman is floating in the nothingness of space and the Sandman keeps popping up everywhere and spoiling the fun. Not quite sure what the story is, but hey, it’s artistic and makes me go all gooey on the inside.
