New Video By Tremble “What Is Anything”

Who says Los Angeles is a tough place to walk? People who don’t know the city, we reckon. The truth is, Downtown L.A. is best navigated on foot. There’s no better way to see the alleys and backstreets that give the undisputed capital of filmed entertainment its offbeat personality. The three members of the dark electronic pop band Tremble call Los Angeles home, and they know their way around the gloriously grimy neighborhoods of the city center. The video for “What Is Anything,” the band’s latest single, is (among other things) a love letter to L.A. – a sleek and stylish tour of Little Tokyo and the Arts District. In so doing, they’re inadvertently making a point: modern Los Angeles belongs to explorers.

The musicians of Tremble fit the bill. Their music is naturally adventurous; they’re risk-takers, even if they’re never ostentatious about it. This is electronica, but it bears the unmistakable stamp of errant humanity; it’s pop, but not the sort you’d encounter on a sunny day. Instead, Tremble makes songs for the shadows – music redolent with the mystery of Los Angeles. Since forming in 2015, the trio has been mesmerizing local audiences with music that nods toward the trip-hop classics of ‘90s Bristol, records by German synthesizer pioneers, moody film soundtracks, and the spookier corners of contemporary pop. What Is Anything Anyway, the group’s second EP, expands on the artistic success of In The Chaos, their debut. The new set is deeper, bolder, more emotionally effulgent, more engrossing, more intoxicating – more of everything that has always set Tremble apart.
