The Trews – …Thank You and I’m Sorry


The Trews have consistently been pumping out rock albums since “Not Ready to Go” first came blaring out from every Canadian rock station in 2003. Whether we like to admit it or not most of us could hum along to at least one Trews song. It is catchy Canadian rock that is played with a certain East coast charm and energy that sets them above other shitty radio friendly rock bands…. like fucking Nickelback. Each album finds these boys writing awesome hooks, although 2011’s Hope & Ruin left something to be desired, …Thank You and I’m Sorry finds the band exploring the old and familiar territory that we have come to expect, while conservatively branching out in a different direction. The Trews absolutely rock the cover of “Leaps and Bounds” by completely making it their own, so much so that you could actually believe they wrote it. “The Power of Positive Drinking” and “Oblivion” are solid catchy party tunes, but the highlight is in album closer  “… And we are the Trews,” where the smart songwriting and straight up Canadian theme spark a sense of pride. This is a decent EP that will hold fans over and draw in some new ones for their next album. (Bumstead/eOne Music Canada, Scott Wolfe
