introducing: Tricot

Japan’s tricot have shared their music video for the single, Melon Soda after a premiere with The Fader

The band are also pleased to announce they will hit the UK this August for a run of headline dates surrounding their appearance at ArcTanGent Festival in Bristol on 19th August (details below).

The clip, shot entirely in reverse by director Mani Kato, is about farewells, as the band explain: “Even if you go backwards, time does not unwind, so you can only move forward.”

‘Melon Soda’ is the entrancing new single from their third album entitled 3 and set for release on 17th May 2017 on Topshelf Records (US), Big Scary Monsters (UK) and Bakuretsu (JP).

Formed in the historical and culturally rich city of Kyoto, Japan in 2010, the three-piece have gained a steadily-growing following with their high-energy live shows throughout Asia, Europe and North America over the past few years, recently supporting The Pixies in the UK. In March 2016 their third tour of Europe took in 21 shows across 12 countries on a schedule jammed with sold-out dates.

Singing in their native Japanese and utilizing unpredictable song transitions, melodic post-rock-inspired sounds and jazz-influenced instrumental breaks, tricot are an enticing prospect for avant-garde music fans and are renowned for their vibrant and intense live performances.

They’ve drawn on a wide variety of rock scenes, from slow-burning American post-rock to bustling Fukuoka’s frantic indie-rock, to create guitar-centric songs that constantly pivot in new directions, and their first two full-length albums, 2013’s T H E and 2015’s A N D, crashed into their home nation’s music charts.

With their current line-up featuring founding members Ikkyu Nakajima (vocals / guitar), Motoko “Motifour” Kida (guitar / backing vocals), and Hiromi “Hirohiro” Sagane (bass / backing vocals), tricot’s unusual and distinctive sound harmonizes pop sensibilities and emotional vocals with complex rhythms and time-signatures that fans of Battles, Speedy Ortiz and Don Caballero should fall instantly in love with.
