Classic Brit Pop Sound from Tripwires

tripwiresI’ve heard a few tunes from Reading’s Tripwires up to this point, but nothing seems as fittingly British as this new single that they’ve just released. It’s reminiscent of old Travis tunes, but there’s a bit more messing with the atmospheric attitude lurking in the background.  That sort of exploration shows a band growing in their confidence, but also a group destined to forge their own territory.  The group will be releasing their album, Spacehopper, via Frenchkiss Records; it’ll be in stores on June 18th. I think the group can go several ways, so I’m excited to see what direction they choose to pursue. I’m sure we’ll all enjoy it, regardless.
