Tripwires - Emerald

It's been a while since we've heard from Tripwires, the Reading four-piece spent much of 2011 behind the scenes readying their debut album and follow-up to debut single "Cinnamon", finally they let the cat out the bag this week with the release of "Emerald", an equally intoxicating mélange of big / soft pop noise.

It bristles with excitement throughout, an adrenaline pumping rush of deliciously fuzzed-up guitar brutality soars over hazy, shimmering melody, relentless drums and echoed vocals. It's been a long wait, but my, has it been worth it.

Tripwires headline (disclosure, my night) The Old Queen's Head on 13th March, also playing are the amazing Sheen and Neuliebe (who aren't a new band you've never heard of, they are a new band you might very well of heard of but I can't tell you who they are, the only hint I'll give you is they've been featured here more than once...). It's going to be a great night, come!
