Triptides Embark On EU/UK Tour
New album Starlight out now

Triptides, the Southern California-based band, are dropping the word ‘psychedelic’ from their vocabulary. After a decade of adventurous songs and albums across genres and styles, ranging from bedroom pop to prog rock to Laurel Canyon country, the band have explored a different sonic terrain for their latest album, Starlight (out now on Curation Records). Driven by the songwriting mind of multi-instrumentalist Glenn Brigman, with longtime collaborator Stephen Burns, Triptides are moving through a galaxy of music following their own compass. 

It’s time to allow the vivid and immersive creations from Triptide to captivate your full attention. The most visceral, upbeat, dazzling compositions capture this broad range of textures and this truly passionate flair. This vital energy is captured from start to finish, addictive and compelling, the energy mirrors that of a 70’s iconic outfit, yet with a completely innovative cut, Triptides are their own unique collective.

In an almost-jazzy fusion of electric keyboard textures and dancefloor grooves, the latest eleven-song LP dips and dives into the worlds of Stereolab, Steely Dan and Cortex. With tightly interwoven rhythm guitars and basslines, coupled with Brigman’s keen sense of melody and harmony, there’s a new energy shining through with Starlight. It’s quite a departure from last year’s laid back acoustic strummer, So Many Days, and it’s lightyears from the surf-rock-cassette era of the group. But despite the unexpected movements, from the sounds and structures, you can instantly tell that it’s Triptides behind the wheel.
