"The Reaper Man"

Country-pop troubadour Trevor Sensor is airing his video for upcoming debut single "The Reaper Man" on Best Fit.

The Sterling, Illinois native washes his raw noises with modern US woes. Raised in an ailing rust belt town (formerly the 'Hardware Capital Of The World', now akin to the "Lynchian neighbourhood of Lumberton from Blue Velvet"), Sensor's slogged through the fading American Dream.

With his interest in The Violent Femmes, Smashing Pumpkins, J.D. Salinger, Arthur Miller and more, it was clear that small town life wasn't his future. On lone-wandering travels, Sensor learned from "ex-junkies" he washed dishes with, and began to set his troubles to music - the result's a ground-down, but remarkably hopeful, voice searching for redemption, identity, and a place to call home.

The video for "The Reaper Man" finds a sombre Sensor walking through a parade in an unnamed American town rife with rusted tractors and ex-miners. For something so simple, it strikes a chord with Sensor's grizzled vocals in the background.

Sensor's debut single is out 20 July via One Too Many Records.

"villains and preachers"

Trevor Sensor has shared a new track, ‘Villains and Preachers’. His second release, it’s the flip-side to debut track ‘The Reaper Man’.

Channeling the zoned-in realism of American playwright Arthur Miller, and the small-town weirdness of David Lynch - two of Trevor Sensor’s chief influences - it’s Trevor Sensor’s striking, dust-sprayed vocal that takes centre-stage on ‘Villains and Preachers’. Tired of sofa-surfing to escape his sleepy town, rolling past laughing windows, and local gossip, Trevor Sensor’s folk, alright, and despite his references to television, and 1950s glancebacks, there’s a timeless quality to his songwriting.
“This song was written after a long walk home from the bar a little after two in the morning,” Trevor Sensor tells us, expanding on some of the inspiration behind ‘Villains and Preachers’. “A lost dog followed me for a couple blocks and I sang to him. He got sick of me after a while, though, and took off. So the song’s about that, my friend Jeremy and a couple other things.”
