Trestles x The Thing
March 8 @ 9:00 pm
Just 4 people who want to bring back the excitement of live local music as well as original rock
The band is comprised of Hunter Kelly (vocals/guitar), Jackson Jones (guitar/vocals), Sophia Wall (bass/vocals), and Malena Clark (drums/vocals). Formed out of the ashes of Jones and Kelly’s garage rock project Speedwalker, Trestles developed a fun surf inspired indie rock sound with the release of their debut single Dwell. In 2021, the band began a rampant series of D.I.Y. shows in the Santa Cruz circuit becoming a common name at UCSC parties and house shows.
In 2022, Trestles started releasing new music with the full band leading up to the release of their first LP. The single Rip Curl Sweatshirt, became their biggest hit through Spotify playlist features. Through this the band built a loyal local following. Described as “one of the most exciting things to come from the scene,” the band has become a Santa Cruz mainstay at venues like The Catalyst and Urbani’s Cellar. Trestles first full length album Halfway Up The Hill was released in December of 2022. The 10 track debut release consists of self produced tracks about “being young and dumb.”
The band then grew their following through playing support sets for Destroy Boys, Scowl, and Movements. In 2023, the band took the album on the road touring college towns in California. The band has since taken a break from performing to write more material they hope to release in the form of a follow-up LP in the coming year.
