So, a new music supergroup is about to emerge on the music scene and I’m cautiously optimistic about their sound: T.R.A.M.. Featuring Adrian Terrazas (The Mars Volta) on sax, flute, bass clarinet and percussion, Javier Reyes (Animals As Leaders) on guitars, Tosin Abasi (Animals As Leaders) on guitars, and Eric Moore (Suicidal Tendencies) on drums, T.R.A.M. will be performing their first live show at SXSW, March 17th at Venue 222. Keep an eye out on the Official Facebook for info as well a song debut in the next few weeks.
Now, here’s why I’m cautious in my optimism: each of these members is absurdly talented and now their instrument inside and out. However, just because you know your instrument and can play technically amazing things doesn’t mean that you can make relatable music. Here’s hoping I’m wrong because if done right, this band could be something truly special and amazing.
