Meet Trent Halliday, ex-member of the extinct London-based garage band, Deep Sea Green and Three Days Dark´s commander in chief, a guitar-oriented solo project that relies comfortably on 60´s psychedelia overlapped with dirty thick layers of blues, tons of reverbs, fuzz and garagesque madness that work out as evocative landscapes through the pure and classic essence of rock ‘n’ roll.
