When I hit The 100 Club to catch Mazes and Parquet Courts in May out of curiosity, I didn’t know much about the support -Traams. I’m glad it was one of those rare occasions that I went to a venue early. The West Sussex trio put me in a trance with their energy and the explosive sound coming off the stage. Such good musicians and there’s something about Stu Hopkins’ vocals…Not my usual type as far as bands and sounds go, I am looking forward to watch these guys own bigger venues and crowds.

Debut LP Grin out in September on FatCat. Save the pennies, it’s absolutely worth it.
