Following on from the release of their debut single Borderline, Brisbane powerhouse TRAILS are gearing up to release their long awaited EP “EP Ø”. A thrilling collision of pulsing synths, infectious guitar riffs and towering vocals, the group’s debut release showcases an innate affinity for melding catchy songwriting and progressive soundscapes.
Born from a university collaboration between multi-instrumentalist Tyler Shilling and accomplished guitarist Daniel Booth, the duo have been quietly building up a repertoire of experimental and deftly constructed songs. Drawing inspiration from genre-defying visionaries Radiohead, Tame Impala and Everything Everything, TRAILS have crafted their own dense, ambient and innovative signature sound. Tyler and Daniel have both been active on the local music scene for several years lending their skills to a number of Brisbane acts and developing their own distinct musical identities. The creative partnership of TRAILS combines both artists’ musical talent to create brooding and darkly atmospheric tracks.
Expanding to a formidable 6-piece, TRAILS bombastic live performances capture the electricity of their music. The group recently supported alt rock mainstays The Superjesus on the Brisbane leg of their 2015 Australian tour, and played a thrilling and emotionally charged set at Brisbane’s The Zoo in support of the release of their debut single Borderline. Catch TRAILS as they launch “EP Ø” at Black Bear Lodge in Brisbane on Sunday May 1st 2016.
