Triple Sun formed in 2011 after playing as part of Katia & Marielle Labeque's 'Minimalist Dreamhouse' over three nights at King's Place in London. Although they had different backgrounds the trio formed an immediate bond, a musical alchemy and they decided to continue working together. It must have been an interesting journey, where rock, classical music and avant garde somehow blended in something intensely captivating.
The sound of Triple Sun alternates between Bohren Und Der Club Of Gore, Anathema, Tool, Alice In Chains, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Slowdive, Brian Eno, Sonic Youth, The Jesus And Mary Chain, The Cure and South San Gabriel. Yeah, I know that's a massive list of names but it should give you a general idea about how great this album sounds. Besides, that's not all, I even forgot to mention a number of drone acts and post-rock bands.
Always slow, usually quite dark, often coming close to the heaviness of sludge metal and often intimate and melancholic, I guess that's the best way to describe this music. Needless to say perhaps, but the atmosphere on this entire album is immersive, inspiring and gloomy, three of my favorite sentiments. I think 'There Are Weapons' is my favorite track, but I don't want to lift it out of context. You need to listen to the whole album.
So yeah, fellow slow music aficionado, look no further. This album will definitely maintain its grip on you in the near future. It's trip-hop for rock fans, ambient for doomers and drones for jazz fans. I don't know if that makes any sense but in Belgium we rarely do. We just know what good music is and we'd very much like it when you listen to it.
