It’s been a while I know (sorry!), I’ve been quite poorly and I’ve been traveling the length and breadth of the country with my company looking at the new releases due for this Christmas (oh gosh yes I did say it…). It’s due to be a good’un, that I can promise you!
But today I want to introduce you to a band that will instantly lift your mood.
So who are the Triptides?
If you could channel the sound of summer on a Californian beach and bottle it up this is what you’d get!
Starting out as a small bedroom project of Glenn Brigman (guitar/vocals) and Josh Menashe (bass/vocals) in 2010, the Triptides soon found a sweet spot for themselves on the American underground scene. Having caused quite a stir playing to festival crowds and packed basements, November 19th sees the release of the bands debut album ‘Sun Pavilion’.
Guaranteed to bring a little sunshine to (what seems so far a wet and dreary) October, the appropriately named album opener ‘Bright Sky’ is full of fun and vitality – including the perfect mix of rich, warm vocals and twangy guitars that’ll send you back to summers passed.
It pretty much sums up their beautiful summery sound and the happiness contained in the album, which is a brilliant introduction to the band themselves and a good peek into the world of surf and psychedelic rock for those who haven’t experienced it yet. The Triptides are certainly bringing back the old school and making retro cool again.
So give Triptides a listen and let me know what you think, I can guarantee it’ll brighten your day!
