Trupa Trupa bring some poetry and subtlety to psychedelic rock.

One of the best rock bands doing business now is from Gdansk, Poland.

Sasha Frere-Jones, Los Angeles Times

***

The band is Polish and the lyrics are in English, but the undercurrent of anxiety and dread that distinguishes Trupa Trupa's music knows no nationality.

Zach Schonfeld, Newsweek USA

***

Trupa Trupa are an art rock band from Gdansk. Fusing elements of post-hardcore, no wave and psychedelia, the four-piece exude a restless energy that bears the hallmarks of Fugazi’s uncompromising punk ethos. The band weave absurd lyrics through liquifying guitar riffs, angular bass lines and concise percussion.

Ilia Rogatchevski, The Wire

***

Iggy Pop played Trupa Trupa on his BBC Radio 6 Music show.

***

This sound, this song and this band lands perfectly in the nexus of everything I love most in music.

Robin Hilton, NPR

***

Trupa Trupa's debut in the Rolling Stone magazine as one of the best acts at SXSW 2018 Festival. "It sounded like the start of a rewarding friendship" says David Fricke.

One of a few Polish bands that broke internationally.

Mark Beaumont, New Musical Express

One of the best bands around at the moment, don't sleep on these.

Cai Trefor, Gigwise

They’ve carved out their own sort of time in their music and invited you in.

There’s nowhere to go but up for this most unique rock band.

Definitely watch out for these guys.

Bands are back in a big way, and Trupa Trupa is hands-down among the very best of them.

Strauss, Tiny Mix Tapes

***

To ingest Trupa Trupa’s Jolly New Songs is to wonder what kind of mushrooms are growing outside behind the band’s practice space in Gdansk.

Ian King, The Line of Best Fit

***

Essential listening.

Paul Margree, Lourder Than War

***

One album I can't get enough of is Jolly New Songs from Polish rock band Trupa Trupa. Imagine rolling bits of Radiohead, Mogwai, Syd Barrett, and Explosions in the Sky together, and you might get a sense of what's in the water in Gdansk.

Jim McGuinn, The Current

***

This is incredible work. The result is their first moment of true greatness.

Tristan Bath, The Quietus

***

With their fierce guitars, anthemic sound, knack for melodies and sometimes quirky lyrics, Trupa Trupa is becoming one of the most notable new psych-rock bands.

Tidal

***

Trupa Trupa murder rock ‘n’ roll and unceremoniously dump its corpse in the Gdańsk Bay. Their recorded rituals celebrating its demise are, ahem, music to our very ears.

Ryan Masteller, Tiny Mix Tapes

***

I listened to the record and not only does it have those elements of Sigur Ros and Radiohead that I like, but they've got an entirely different, I would say, even darker character of their own.

David Fricke, SiriusXM

***

Oh my good God, I have seen the light! How have Trupa Trupa evaded me for so long?

Nigel Carr, Lourder Than War

***

Jack White
