***Their mantra can be best summed up as: "Keep it simple and get to the point." "Pop aesthetics tend to overvalue the hooks and choruses of songs at the expense of context and narrative," ANDREW (singer/guitarist) explains. "That’s not the kind of storytelling tradition I'm particularly excited by." TRAPS PS is an attempt to deconstruct and reorganize the narrative, leaving in only what is absolutely necessary.The summation of the group's ethos, their sound, is structured around haunted vocals, brittle / percussive guitar, pulsating / instinctive bass, and persistent / taut drums. If you were to catch them live, either in some dark vaulted club or under a washed out LA overpass, both equally likely places to find them, you would be drawn in by the same thing, their energy, be it from the bass, kick, or toms, where the foundation of a song is often laid, or by the snare, guitar, and vocals piercing and slicing on top of things. "Having the ingredients isn't enough in life," states Andrew. "Time and space is everything." From these principles Traps PS mesmerizes, shifts, and drags you along songs. Sometimes shifting the rhythm to the right hand of the guitar, other times pushing the melody to the left hand of the bass, in every scenario the narrative is kept as the context shifts. Songs are constructed in such a way that just as the listener begins to relax, lulling the beat from chest to foot, Traps PS stops on a dime, ending one song while simultaneously launching into another. Edition of 250 copies on "civil resistor split" colored vinyl.
