TRAAMS – New material and Pie & Vinyl instore

Chichester trio TRAAMS have shared a new track titled “Comedown”. The song is taken from their highly anticipated new album “personal best”, which is out 22nd July via long-term label Fat Cat.

“personal best” marks the band’s first full-length album since 2015’s critically-acclaimed ‘Modern Dancing’, and comes hot on the heels of their recent highly acclaimed single ‘Sleeper‘, which featured guest vocals from Soffie Viemose of Bella Union’s Danish five-piece Lowly.

The band recently announced their long-awaited return alongside a new single titled ‘The Light At Night‘, which features Joe Casey of Protomartyr, and was accompanied by a new video co-directed by Charlotte Gosch & Lee Kiernan of IDLES. This was also recently followed by the release of a track called “Breathe”, which saw the band exemplifying the new songwriting methods that are explored across “personal best” with subtle yet intricate synth lines, electronic manipulations, and programmed beats. The track also featured guest vocals from Softlizard (the new project from Liza Violet of Menace Beach).

Arriving just ahead of their new album, “Comedown” is another consummate snapshot of how TRAAMS are combining their earlier band sensibilities with new more expansive dynamics and instrumentation. Featuring Softlizard once again, the track is one of just two songs on the album to feature live drums, which drive the track alongside propulsive cyclical basslines. The track is underpinned with subtle krautrock-esque synth lines and psych-infused guitar riffing, as Liza Violet’s vocals intertwine with vocalist and guitarist, Stu Hopkins’.

Speaking on the track, Hopkins says, 

“Comedown was the first track to be started and the last to be finished on the new record.

It’s weird how that happens – you can definitely think and pour over a track a little too long sometimes… A friend of mine said at some point you just have to put it down and let it be. It was good advice.

Comedown was by and large written pre-covid but listening to it now most of the lyrics sound like I’m singing about the pandemic and ensuing lockdowns. I’m not. But if you want to pretend I am, that’s obviously fine. We were lucky to have Liza guest on this one too. She did a great job, and totally owns the track. We’ll be debuting this live in the next run of shows. It sounds decent live. Promise.”

In addition to the new single, TRAAMS have also announced a short run of in-store shows to coincide with the new albums release, with a date at our very own Southsea’s Pie & Vinyl tomorrow (22nd July). These come ahead of a new run of EU / UK live dates for Oct / Nov 2022 which can be found here.
