This RSD release will act as the final release from Glasgow based Psych Folk band, Trembling Bells.

After 10 years of being in a band which has felt more like a family, these are the final two statements from Trembling Bells.

“I Am The King” is inspired by various Greek myths. It’s about self-destruction- feeling so jaded by the fruit machine of life that you start taking yourself apart as the final act of entertainment. “Medusas” sounds like it’s a Greek myth but is actually about jelly fish.

The Alex Rex songs are both covers. In April 2018 my younger brother, Alastair, passed away in his sleep. I dream about him regularly. In one of my dreams we sang the “Night Visiting Song” together as a way of saying goodbye and to induce his passage into the world beyond. “You Know More Than I Know” is a John Cale song.” Quote from Alex Neilson of Trembling Bells and Alex Rex.
