TRILLS Release Sneak Peek Of New Single Ahead Of World Premiere Edinburgh Show

Award-wining female four-piece, TRILLS, have today released a sneak peek of their latest single 'Green Ghost', set for digital release on 10th August. The single forms part of the soundtrack to their brand-new play-come-gig Songlines by band member Tallulah Brown, a song-laced coming of age tale set in Reydon, Suffolk, featuring live folk music with the band on stage throughout. Songlines will premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival from 1 August before travelling to Aldeburgh, Suffolk-born Brown's home town, and then to Walthamstow for the show's London premiere. The production, directed by George Chilcott, is presented by HighTide and DugOut Theatre.

Stevie and Stan are 17. Stevie is peak cool. Stan is peak geek. Interwoven with beautiful live folk songs, Songlines is a coming-of-age love story in all its awkward teen glory.

TRILLS, billed as "Britain's excellent answer to Haim" by The Times, were recently granted winners of the PRS Women in Music Fund. Their hauntingly epic sound has featured in various film and TV trailersincluding Suffragette, Pete's Dragon and The Missing. The band have performed at Glastonbury Festival and Latitude.

The two-hander will star Fanta Barrie and Joe Hurst. Fanta has just graduated from Rose Bruford. Joe's recent screen work includes Wanderlust (Netflix), Intrigo: Samria (20th Century Fox), Ready Player One(Warner Bros) and Alice Through the Looking Glass (Walt Disney Pictures).

Tallullah is part of the BBC TV Drama Programme with Sister Pictures (The Split, Flowers) and recent theatre includes: Sea Fret, After the Heat We Battle for the Heart and Staring at You. Songlines is Tallulah's first commissioned full length play. George Chilcott is Artistic Director and Founder of DugOut Theatre, and formerly an Associate Director at HighTide.

Songlines is the centrepiece production of a new scheme by HighTide. For the first time, HighTide is presenting a season of five world premiere productions at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, before transferring them to its Aldeburgh and Walthamstow Festivals, as part of a brand-new mentoring scheme for new playwrights and producers. The launch of the programme marks the company's continued commitment to creating a bridge that supports new theatre makers starting out on the fringe, building on the festival's proven ability in providing a platform for launching careers in the UK's leading theatres.

HighTide's other associate productions, all to be presented at Edinburgh, Aldeburgh and Walthamstow, are: Sparks; Jessica Butcher's two-hander musical about the brain's response to grief with original music by Anoushka Lucas; Danusia Samal's gig-theatre piece Busking It, drawing on a decade of busking on the tube; The Extinction Event from David Aula and Simon Evans - an examination of what happens when science starts thinking for itself; and finally, Harry Blake's fierce, fabulous new comedy musical about Norse gods Thor and Loki.
