Off The Record – ALBUM FOCUS – Trench, Twenty One Pilots

Have you ever wanted To listen to a new band or musician and not sure where to start? Well, instead of listening to their commercial music, why not start with something off the album first!  Today we look at a band that have recently just released this album after their award winning one before – Twenty One Pilots and their album Trench. 


This song has a real strong hip hop feel about it, the beat is repetitive and very catchy and throughout there is a really addictive jingle. The chorus really compliments this song and it makes it something that is really fun to listen to. The introduction of the brass instruments half way through really make this song something entirely different.


This song is one of the slower songs on the album with a very mellow backing beat that makes it feel mystical and quite chilled out. The lyrics intertwine through the melodic lyrics that are very well written. It is a song worth listening to as it is very melodic.

Neon Gravestones

The thing that makes this song completely stand out is the fact that it combines a beautiful piano melody with the world of hip hop. The lyrics are pretty complex and are placed on top of a very mature and complex musical composition. Also halfway through the song the drumbeat becomes intense and completely outstanding.

Leave The City

This is the last song on the record and it is a lot slower then a lot of the songs but at the same time it is a wonderful end to a really interesting album. It has a lot of elements in this song for Twenty One Pilots to be proud of, it sort of combines hip hop, classical music elements and electronica into one.
