Serious-Face, Ps


Traps, Ps are currently in their second incarnation. Initially the band was Andrew (guitar/vox), Debbie (bass), Mark (percussion), and Mike (drums), and currently their line-up is Andrew (guitar/vox), Miles of Moses Campbell (drums), and Danny of Rare Grooves (bass). The Islander has only seen the current band preform, but really enjoyed it. The show was well, danceable, which is sometimes the best quality a show can have. Everyone in the audience was having a good time, and it was clear that the band was having fun as well. Their sound makes The Islander feel like he is listening to Television covering Gang of Four, which is much weird in concept than it is in reality. On the track “Prove It To You” the band displays ridiculous amounts of potential. The song starts with drums, and then vocals and a bass part come in. In the last twenty seconds in when the song really picks up and the whole band comes in. This song was written and recorded by the former line-up and while it is quite fun, the newer material was a bit more developed and even more enjoyable. If one has a chance to see them, it is absolutely worth it.
