TRAAMS have always wrestled with category. Part motorik drum beats, part discordant guitars, pop melodies and hypnotic bass lines. All are present here. With a collection of three new tracks they have expanded further. Collaborating with friends and new instrumentation, each track is different from the last. But all sound like the inimitable TRAAMS.
Written and recorded over a brief hiatus, ‘The Greyhound’, a near ten minute kaleidoscope of sounds, sees the band expanding further than ever. Recorded in Brighton with Theo Verney, and featuring Lewis Evans (Black Country, New Road) on Saxophone, the track builds from the offset into a hypnotic, driving, post rock blow out. Themes of repetition, life cycles, pursuing ones path, growth & education, fulfillment and closure.

Brighton rock n roll prodigy Theo Verney releases a brand new EP. The distorted joy that is the five track ‘Brain Disease EP’ is released on Mount Olympus Recordings. The ‘Brain Disease’ EP, written and recorded entirely by Theo in Brighton earlier this year, is a honed, fuzzy pop progression from the looser psych jams of last year’s much acclaimed EP ‘Heavy Sunn’ released on Hate Hate Hate Records

Theo Verney’s formula has always been rooted a combination of absorbing riffs and wild abandon. So when it comes to new track, ‘Brain Disease’, it’s little surprise that the Brighton-based rocker hasn’t taken a detour.

Following lead trackMountain Rose, the title-track of Verney’s new EP takes some of the brief thrashing power of its predecessor, dropping a jerky melody in favour of straightforward, all-out garage-rock. Both tracks stay true to Verney’s original dark and heavy roots, only now the lyrics are frightfully paranoid and his voice shines through with confidence and assertion.

Ahead of three performances at this year’s Alt Escape in Brighton, Listen here to Theo Verney’s ‘Brain Disease’. ‘Brain Disease’ is out via Mount Olympus Recordings on 8th June. You can pre-order the new EP here and catch him at the Great Escape this coming weekend.

When Theo Verney started out, he sat atop a wall of thrash and fuzz, a relentless charge that would have done anything just to get louder, more obnoxious. But give or take a couple of years and the Brighton resident’s refined his approach. This new song ‘Mountain Rose’ is the best example yet, trading a fuzz addiction for something more restrained and devoted to rhythm. Make no mistake, this isn’t a tame beast, but it’s a showcase of Theo Verney’s nelwy-acquired know how, the best realisation yet of his charming, chugged energy. With a new EP forthcoming titled ‘Brain Disease’ EP, out soon on Marshall Teller Records. He is currently recording his debut full-length album.
