Of The Sun - press

Just really dug them a lot. Trupa Trupa. A band that is at once very experimental but also deeply commited to the kind of noise that gets you out of your seat. You can get the sense that there is a lot of social protest, a lot of noise on behalf of the issues that matter. This is Trupa Trupa. The new album is called Of the Sun out in September. This is a track that really has a great sort of heavy metal Radiohead vibe about it and I really dig it. Keep an eye of that record.

David Fricke, Rolling Stone, SiriusXM

Trupa Trupa's Of The Sun takes apparently simple songs and brutally smashes them up. A gripping slog with beautiful, luminous moments that stay with you long after you’ve stopped listening.

Poland’s Trupa Trupa have a deconstructive approach to songwriting. A group who break guitar music down to its components, they re-assemble these shards of noise into strange pieces of art. New album ‚Of The Sun’ lands on September 13th, and it’s another dazzling dose of invention from a band whose reputation is extending across the continent.

I am loving the music of Trupa Trupa out of Poland.

Stuart Maconi, BBC Radio 6 Music

Trupa Trupa’s music mixes elements of so many things I love – bits of psychedelia, krautrock, repetition, noise, melody, and beauty. It can be haunting, harsh, disturbing, meditative – sometimes all in the same track. This year they have made their best album yet.

Great modern psychedelic rock is alive and well and living its best life in Poland. And leading the present charge of innovative talent from Eastern Europe is Trupa Trupa, who will be releasing their excellent new album, Of The Sun, on September 13th. An early listen to Of The Sun reveals a tremendous amount of growth for Trupa Trupa since their formation over a decade ago.

The music made by Polish post-punks Trupa Trupa finds a haunting balance between intensity and off-beat melodies, even as the group’s lyrics juxtapose the absurd with the harrowing.

You may not think you need an album of abrasive psychedelic post-punk that deals with light fare like Holocaust denialism, but you do – check out Poland’s Trupa Trupa’s new one, Of the Sun, out today.

Thierry Côté, Popdose, Exclaim

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

A revelation. ★★★★★

Michal Boncza, Morning Star

It is a truly special record that feels like it could never tire and be passed down through generations as an example of..‘Yeah, there was great guitar bands in the 2010s’.

Cai Trefor, Gigwise

This is music for an uncertain future, exploring deep in the valley of our disunity, panning mistakes from history's river.
