The artwork for Triptides’ ‘Sun Pavilion’ album is intriguing, because although it ticks all the beach-pop boxes with palm trees, a swimming pool and a distant figure in a swimsuit, it doesn’t exactly look like a typecast tropical paradise. Clouds leer above, the pool looks cheap, probably infested with bugs. If I saw it in a holiday resort catalogue, I’d make a careful note to avoid that specific resort.

And this leads us onto what makes Triptides a thrilling prospect - there’s more to them than mere lo-fi escapism, you see. Each song, while laced with the clean guitar sound and fuzzy vocals that have so visibly emerged as a disappointing norm, has a new dimension to thrive in, be it a sinister turn or a more sombre, despondent outer edge. If you stream ‘Shark Attack’ below, you won’t be grabbed by its hazy, happy sound, you’ll more likely be struck by its immediacy, its uncanny likeness to an ‘80s police show car chase. There’s more than first meets the naked ear with Triptides, and this is what makes Glenn Brigman (vox, guitar), Josh Menashe (bass, vox), and Josh Morrow (drums) such an exciting trio.

Triptides release ‘Sun Pavilion’ through Stroll On Records (Acid Glasses, Laser Background) on 19th November.
