“Edinburgh grunge rockers Art of Privilege are currently working on their debut album but to wet our appetite they have decided to give us a little taster of what't to come in the shape of their single 'Trust'. Not entirely sticking to a typical grunge sound the band are swaying more into a more natural rock genre and progressing into a sound that most definitely works for them. Trust is an incredibly well produced single and definitely worthy of being released as a single to show us just what the band are capable of. Brilliant vocal work on top of spine tingling guitar solos and drumming, the Scottish lads have produced a corker here. If Trust truly is a sign of what is to come from the album then we will be watching these guys like a hawk, an incredible emerging talent with a lot to prove, be sure to check them out!”
