Trailer Trash Tracys

A one-time SNAP Of The Day (remember that?) circa 2009, shoegaze sect Trailer Trash Tracys score another CMU endorsement by virtue of the fact that they’re finally ready to release a debut album. Well, nearly – ‘Ester’, as it’s called, is due out via Domino/Double Six on 16 Jan.

While earlier creations ‘Candy Girl’ and ‘Strangling Good Guys’ pledge much of their cherry-coloured selves to lo-fi legends Cocteau Twins, recent single ‘Dies In 55’ is a dream-pop oddity more in the band’s own style, whirling inside a carousel of clipped arpeggios, drum-pad slaps and jaunty bass. Listen to the latter plus three other album tracks via the ‘Ester’ sampler below.

TTT are booked to support Twin Sister and Real Estate on 25 Oct at The Garage in London.
