After a whirlwind year touring Europe with WIRE, completing a UK and EU headline tour of their own, as well as smashing SXSW on the dusty, drunken streets of Texas, Chichester based three-piece TRAAMS return rejuvenated and bloodthirsty with their first release of 2014 ‘Cissa’.
Their debut album ‘Grin’, produced by fuzz loving tastemaker Rory Atwell and MJ of Hookworms, perfectly encapsulated that restlessness that defines growing up in a small town. Beat up pothole filled roads lit by flickering orange street lamps as opposed to the surreal bright lights and never ending noise of the big city. It screams and yelps, twists and turns, relentlessly releasing a fractured, fearsome energy.
