Swimming Pool Lyrics. Recorded At Fat Cat Records. Release Date September 24, 2013.
TRAAMS is a British indie rock band which formed in Chichester and are now based in Leeds. The band formed in late 2011. The band's name "TRAAMS" comes from the acronym for "Time Reference Angle of Arrival Measurement System". The trio's roots originated in mid-2011 when the bandmembers met at Goo a bar based in Chichester.
Album-opener 'Swimming Pool' sets out the blueprint for the band's sound - guitar, bass and drums all interlocked in a relentless, krautrock-esque groove and and tempered with with a post-punk fuzz. Repetition is absolutely a key element throughout the record - there's always something to underpin every song, be it the thunderous drumbeat on 'Reds' or the desert-rock guitar riffs on 'Grin'. TRAAMS are clearly as comfortable with extended jams as they are with poppier, sub-three-minute numbers, and they should be commended for making an album that sounds coherent despite the apparently conflicting nature of these styles.
