Another one mailed to me while I was on holiday, knee deep in eat-all-you-can buffet ice cream – The Tripdown Project from North East England (Sheffield, according to their Reverbnation profile). They bill themselves as “alternative rock”, and they’ve got some catchy stuff out.
They’ve got a good online presence, but little in the way of info about them bio-wise so I’ll give you what I’ve got… They’re a three-piece with JoJo on “Vox, Strings & Things”, Shrap on Vox & Drums and Tim rounding things out on Vox & Bass. They’ve recently released an album entitled Post Modern Delay which can be purchased via the usual links below.
Their sound is a very upbeat one, quite groovy and with an edge of punk to it. It’s easy to get into and has lasting appeal – I’ve listened to the album a few times now and it does grow on you.
As always, though, whether you like the is entirely up to you. You can sample the whole album online and choose to fork over your heard-earned cash if you reckon they’ve earned it. I reckon a few of you will do just that.
