Raucous post punk band Traams have announced details of their debut album, 'Grin', which will be released 16th September on FatCat Records in the UK.
Recorded throughout 2012 and 2013 with producers Rory Atwell and MJ from Hookworms, the aptly-titled 'Grin' is eleven tracks of pure distorted joy.
Starting off with 'Swimming Pool''s sonorous, atmospheric welcome, 'Grin' twists and turns it's way through shards of hooky indie pop on 'Flowers' and 'Fibbist', plunging into darker krautrock depths on 'Klaus' and the title track. The album successfully captures the raw energy of TRAAMS' frenzied and sweaty live performances, as witnessed at The Great Escape, Tallin Music Week and gigging withParquet Courts and Hookworms
