Subtlety and poetry are not usually words that come to mind when thinking of psychedelic rock, but they are certainly two adjectives that can be used to describe the music of Trupa Trupa. Hailing from Poland, this four-piece band has been making waves in the psych scene with their unique blend of sounds and influences.

Who is Trupa Trupa?

Formed in 2008, Trupa Trupa is a Polish experimental rock band who have been compared to the likes of Sonic Youth and Pixies. The band’s name is taken from a Polish children’s book, and their music has been described as “psychedelic noise-pop”.

Trupa Trupa have released three albums: their self-titled debut (2010), Headache (2014), and Oferta (2017). Headache was nominated for the Fryderyk Award (the Polish equivalent of the Grammy Awards) for Best Alternative Album.

The band’s fourth album, Gruszka, is set to be released on October 5, 2018.

What is their sound?

Trupa Trupa might be the most unusual band you’ll hear all year. The Polish quartet make a kind of off-kilter psychedelic rock, infused with punk energy, post-rock soundscapes and some unexpected turns into delicate folk and even trip-hop. It’s an intriguing mix that is anchored by the band’s songwriting, which ranges from the poppy to the dark and poetic.

What are their influences?

Trupa Trupa’s influences range from punk and garage rock to krautrock, dub, and psychedelia. Their sound has been likened to that of Pixies, Fugazi, Talking Heads, and Modest Mouse.

How have they evolved?

Trupa Trupa, a Polish band, originally started as a noise rock trio. They self-released their first album in 2012 and followed it with a mini-album, both of which were well-received by critics. The band then signed to Golf Channel Recordings and released their second album, Headache, in 2015. This album brought them more attention, and they began to tour internationally.

In 2018, the band released their third album, Jolly New Songs, which was even more successful than their previous two releases. The album was nominated for the Mercury Prize, and the band toured extensively in support of it.

Trupa Trupa’s sound has evolved over the years, from noise rock to psychedelic rock. They have always been a highly experimental band, but on Jolly New Songs they added more subtlety and poetry to their music while still retaining the raw energy that has made them so popular.

What is their new album about?

Trupa Trupa’s new album, “Of the Sun,” is a collection of 10 psychedelic-tinged rock songs that explore themes of love, loss, and existential angst. Lead singer Grzegorz Kwiatkowski said in an interview with Consequence of Sound that the album is “about the light and the darkness that we all experience in our lives.”

Kwiatkowski’s lyrics are often oblique and cryptic, but they are also suffused with a deep sense of longing and melancholy. On the song “Into the Sun,” he sings about being “tired of searching for something that’s not there/And I’m sick of trying to be someone that I’m not.” These lyrics capture the feeling of aimlessness and alienation that many people experience in today’s world.

Despite its heavy subject matter, “Of the Sun” is also an incredibly beautiful and moving album. The band’s inventive use of dynamics and sound textures creates a sense of grandeur and scale, while still remaining intimate and personal. This is an album that will stay with you long after you’ve finished listening to it.
