The Rude Awakening

The Rude Awakening new track for radio ‘Star’ Out now!

THE RUDE AWAKENING (or TRA) is an intriguing Warwickshire-based synth duo that creates original songs based on life experiences, taboos and the insecurities of humans. Johnny and Bridget have been writing and performing together since 2018 following years spent making electronic music in other guises. Johnny has supported Blancmange, Adam Ant, Wolfgang Flur, SigueSigue Sputnik, Altered Images, etc, and Bridget was half of

Aberdeen-based synthpop act Destination.

Together as THE RUDE AWAKENING, the duo’s debut album Kaleidoscope received many favourable reviews and, recently cited by The Electricity Club as a band to watch, they are now working on their second album. With a string of original single releases to their name already including Emerald Dancer, It’s OK Not to Be OK, Your Wetness is My Weakness.

STAR is a modern synthpop love song exploring the complexities and also the wonder of human relationships. It’s a dialogue between two lovers, opening up about their individual frailties and faults, talking about trust and hope and the strength and courage each gains from the other to overcome any barriers and obstacles they face in life.

The Kaleidoscope album is available to buy in CD format and download from:
