Triptides released my favourite 45 of last year, the Byrdsy “Can’t You See”, and now they’re back with their first release of 2019. This one is out on Hypnotic Bridge and is called “Nirvana Now”. It takes their sound in a slightly more 90s britpop direction (Stone Roses, anyone?) with all of the characteristics of Triptides’ unique and superb songwriting still in place. What a tune. “She Is Dressed In Red” is more in the vein of the most recent album Visitors, and sounds like a mindmeld between Arthur Lee and David Crosby. One of my favourite Triptides songs so far.
