Record Store Day 2019: Best releases include Trembling Bells’ finale

Trembling Bells – I Am The King

Psychedelic Glaswegian folk band Trembling Bells are using Record Store Day to announce their split, issuing one final EP as their swan song.

“After 10 years of being in a band which has felt more like a family, these are the final two statements from Trembling Bells,” said drummer and founder member Alex Neilson.

The band’s final two songs are I Am The King and Medusas “which sounds like it’s a Greek myth but is actually about jelly fish”.

On the b-side are two songs Neilson recorded under his solo pseudonym Alex Rex, in tribute to his younger brother, Alastair, who died in his sleep last year.

“I dream about him regularly,” said the singer. “In one of my dreams we sang the Night Visiting Song [originally by Luke Kelly] together as a way of saying goodbye and to induce his passage into the world beyond.”
