‘Slipping’ is the first of two tracks on TRAAMS latest double A-side release ‘Slipping/Penguin’. The band have recently completed a UK tour including dates alongside Eagulls + Protomartyr, The Wytches and Girl Band.
‘Slipping’ starts off rather muted before erupting into a hypnotic, thrumming guitar rhythm which is soon joined by confident, gritty vocals. The track slips into a rather experimental, almost worldly guitar melody in the middle which ends up with the original guitar rhythm interlocking with a matching bass rhythm… It’d be too obvious for me to use a Wire comparison, but the similarities are there throughout this track, instrumentation and vocal-wise.
