Check out tricot'snew music video for "potage" that premiered today on NPR! This song is from their upcoming double A-sided 7" that also features the song "On the bloom" and is available for pre-order now. Their stunning new video displays a brilliantly colorful and painted set, pairing beautifully with their unique sound.
We get to bring you more tricot! We love this band and are so excited to be releasing their upcoming 7" titled potage / On the boom. We were lucky enough to work with them on their album 3 last May, and after recently announcing that we'll be bringing their releases T H E + A N D to North America on vinyl for the first time, we still felt the need for more. Once you hear these ladies, you will, too! Sign up here to be notified when potage / On the boom pre-orders go live!
Exciting news everyone! We're putting out not one, but TWO tricot releases this year! These albums have never been released outside of Asia, and we think it's about time you all get your hands on them! We will be releasing both T H E, tricot's first full release, which came out in 2013, as well as A N D, tricot's second release, which came out back in 2015.
tricot has a truly inspirational sound-- a blend of native Japanese vocals, jazzy instrumental breaks, and an overall layer of post-punk sound. If you're a math-rock head, believe us, they've got the whole genre covered.
We are beyond excited to be able to get these releases in all of your hands. Pre-orders are available now.
tricot // The Fader Premieres Music Video for 'Melon Soda'
The Fader calls tricot's music video for their new single, Melon Soda, "completely hypnotizing." Agreed.
About the hypnotizing concept, the band says, "'Even if you go backwards, time does not unwind so you can only move forward. It has popped and disappeared like sweet melon soda.'"
"The clip unfolds in reverse, but lead vocalist Ikkyu Nakajimaand's singing is still perfectly synced. It's pretty, and also kind of a mindfuck." - The Fader
The song is from tricot's upcoming album, 3, which we'll be releasing in just one week from today on Wednesday, May 17. Until then, pre-orders are available via Big Scary Monsters if you want to reserve your copy!
tricot // "DeDeDe" Track Stream and Album Pre-Order
We finally get to share tricot's new single "DeDeDe" with you today! It just premiered via GoldFlakePaint, who said the track is "a gleaming three-and-a-half minutes that bends and bursts and delivers a thrilling sense of brightness that will have you clamouring for the repeat button." It will take you on a journey through lively vocal harmonies and varying time signatures that make for an incredibly unique song with a catchy, upbeat vibe.
