I can’t wait for Chichester trio TRAAMS to reveal their unique krautrock-infused punk rock with the release of their debut EP Ladders later this year. Putting a noisey spin on a collection of sounds from your favourite bands, fans are describing Traams as ‘The new Smashing Pumpkins on Ketamine’. Traams live shows are also catching a lot of attention with the bands energetic use of intense bass rifts and pulsating drums making for an almost magnetic live performance. After hooking up with producer Rory Atwell for their first recordings, songs such as Peggy have already gained thousands of plays on Sound Cloud and Band Camp, as well as Klaus the seven minute long mix of distorted, relentless grunge.
Just recently signed to Brighton label Fatcat, stand-alone track Mexico has particularly caught the attention of online press such as The Line of Best Fit and This Is Fake DIY. Having supported Los Angeles garage rock band Fidlar on their successful UK tour and new phyche revival favourite’s Temples, the band have since been doing the rounds across London and Brighton. Over the next few months TRAAMS will be performing at prestigious London venues the 100 Club and The Shacklewell Arms so make sure you don’t miss out.
