Melbourne-based The Trotskies release new single ‘DYR’

the trotskiesMelbourne-based The Trotskies bring you the first single “DYR” off their upcoming EP – complete with a run of East Coast tour dates. “DYR” is out now

Drawing inspiration from endless and idle hours listening to ‘70s and ‘80s post-punk, The Trotskies turned their focus on forging dense, dark, and dreamy pop that could ultimately and importantly be able to translate live. A slow-building epic wall of sound, DYR highlights the bands influences by looking back at sounds of the past (Bauhaus, Cocteau Twins, Rowland S. Howard and The Jesus & Mary Chain), while carving their own future with a kick-driven hypnotic melody.

After releasing their debut EP in 2013, with lead single “Vis A Vision”, and supporting the likes of Kele (Bloc Party), Wolf & Cub, Gang Of Youths and Lurch & Chief, The Trotskies return with a brand new single, more complex sounds.

The Trotskies have delivered an imposing and thoroughly enjoyable listening experience, only increasing expectations for what promises to be an exceptional debut LP.
Tone Deaf (8.5 out of 10, Record of the Week)

“The synth-pop of Vis A Vision certainly evokes Joy Division and The Cure.
The Music (4 out of 5 Stars)

“The slow build draws you in, the slightly muffled vocals creates an air of ambiguity. The keyboards fly under the radar and it may take a few listens to pick up on it, but they add an otherworldly atmosphere that gives the impression of searching for something new in the familiar.”
Happy (“DYR” premiere)
