Description

Grin on LP

Vinyl LP pressing. Recorded throughout 2012 and 2013 with producers Rory Atwell (Test Icicles) and MJ from Hookworms, the aptly titled Grin is 11 tracks of pure distorted joy. Grin successfully captures the raw energy of TRAAMS' frenzied and sweaty live performances. Grin is the sound of a band finding true solace in music as a driving force. As such, the album is bristling and vital - a sonic escape. The band has both a both a pop immediacy and a more expansive, experimental element and incorporating the two sides is essential when writing a TRAAMS song. As the band's Stu Hopkins elaborates, 'We really want to push both those areas as far as we can. We like seeing people dance and having fun but we also want to be noisy and aggressive.' That tenuous balance is what keeps TRAAMS music endlessly exciting and keeps US coming back so often to dig into each new song with anticipations high.
