How do we tell a song is a good song? The easiest way is probably to check if it blends in with our general attitude to life. With its first note, the first syllable sung it's there with us to change the way we feel. This is where the Trip of Triband's new album begins. Whether softly flowing or in a stirring up‐tempo: these songs float unresistingly into ourselves. They push a hidden reset key inside us and make us susceptible to comforting shivers. This music churns up the body: not ecstatically, but organically. We subtly begin to breathe its rhythm, finally finding ourselves on a fascinating inner trip – an intense Trip through the entire range of our own pulse beat from calm to racing. Because one thing is for sure: this music is alive!
The ten songs on T rip , Triband's new and second album, have an almost physical resence, and while they are playful and full of relish, they are still consistently developed from rough, strangely unconsumed grooves. They connect laid‐back songwriting of timelessly good pop music with the freedom and the attitude of jazz. They confidently blend these two universes into a distinguishably self‐contained sound, a luscious urban cocktail, seductively light, but still heavily inspiring.
Triband adds depth to lifestyle.
