Video of the Moment #2150: Trevor Sensor

If you haven’t listened to American singer/songwriter Trevor Sensor before, the rough stridency of his singing voice and the dark cynicism in his songwriting might initially strike you as a bit off-putting. That being said, his songs also have a sharp wit and irreverent humour about them that is somehow perversely appealing. I laughed out loud at the outset of his new video for ‘When Tammy Spoke to Martha’, a deliberately obnoxious lounge-themed tune that sets an unmistakable tone with the slurred opening lyric “I get in trouble every time I go to the bar”. Watch the kitschy, smoke-filled promo below and decide for yourself.

Sensor’s new EP ‘Starved Nights of Saturday Stars’ is due out next week, on the 5th of August via Jagjagwuar. He is scheduled to visit the UK that very weekend for a stop at Oxfordshire’s Wilderness Festival, followed by an appearance at the Green Man Festival in Wales. Sensor will then hop back across the pond for September and October tour dates in North America with recent TGTF alumnus Foy Vance.
