REVIEWS

Eric Perry @ DPRP reviews: "...the self-titled debut from the Islington based trio, Trinity and Triage...is a vibrant testament to the power of three.

The definition of 'Trinity' fits this group's creative output well. It's present in the soul of the music in the combination of the delicate acoustic guitar tones which blend with the atmospheric synth and Mellotron and the haunting, enchanting vocals.

A laid back Folk groove is predominant in many of the songs on the album and when it is combined with a mysterious, gothic darkness - such as that found on Synaptic Edge - there is something of Phideaux to be found, which is no bad thing at all.

This is an album that by and large takes its time, sometimes at a pace that would struggle to match the resting pulse of an Olympic athlete and yet the slow etherealness of the quieter pieces avoid becoming insipid by being balanced with great effect by the number of harder edged tracks such as Cathedral and the heavy-riffed, Psychedelic-infused Those Who Leave. The latter could be attributed by influence towards Grace Slick minus the acid-laced colouring.

As with these numbers and generally throughout the album, the influences aren't blatant and don't impact the overall originality.

Production-wise the album has a lot of sparkle which accentuates well some of the subtleties in the guitar playing and the layered vocals. If your musical taste is broader and you like it to be merely prog-infused without being limited to just that genre, this is a good option.."

Svetonio @ ProgArchives: "Just released progressive folk album by female fronted trio from UK. Great vocals, luscious songwriting & cloying atmosphere. Strongly recommended."

Jason Spencer @ Progulator: "Trinity & Triage have crafted a debut album that is hypnotic, dreamlike, and completely fresh. Yes, it’s slow and subtle, but it’s also furiously sung, expertly played, and massively entertaining. Mind-bending at times, haunting in others, this album features moments of truly towering surrealism, such as on the track “Surreal”. So, from the more playful tone of “Surreal” and “Cathedral” to the fantastically executed “Scorn” (my favorite) and the subtle “All at Sea”, this debut album from Trinity & Triage is worthy of prog fans of all stripes."

André de Boer @ DPRP.net: "A female-fronted band may have a negative ring to it for some people, because too many bands have tried to clone others. This may be quite true, depending on your view, but if you are open-minded to all new stuff you will notice that skipping this 'category' is a mistake. Take a look at this London-based band which creates really fantastic, sensitive, high quality, mesmerising and renewing progressive folk. And don't take 'folk' too literally here. I also like the use of Hammond organ on some songs."

ElectricDisk.com: "“Those who leave” spins slightly middle-eastern melodies into an intricate psychedelic guitar haze with thick bass rhythms which tighten into a quick tourniquet perfectly shape-charged to consume your mind. The wicked keyboard riffs destroy any chance you’ll switch the playlist until the song is over. Once the Hammond gets started it commands the air-space and refuses to let you escape from the bitter-sweet harmonic tone."

Udo Capeto @ Super Melodic Tracks: "I had to do a double take ear-wise when "We Won't Say Goodbye" came up on the digital turntable as the singer seemed to have mutated into Kate Bush, a hero of mine. It's a great track with a nice bridge and a slight change of direction in the tune afterwards. Also, it's got harpsichord."

Torodd Fuglesteg @ The Sound of Fighting Cats: "This band may be the next big thing."

Track Name: Surreal
Something with substance
But zero thought, and zero consequence
And we could move mountains
Even those just underneath our head

The horses are frozen
Waiting for a door to open wide
You have your reasons
But they don’t hold the weight of mine

Break free from the gate
Pound in the soft earth
Leave lanes far behind us
We’ll veer into a left curve
Soar over the wall
Enter into a golden field
Hills we could fly
Surreal

I’ll tell you my secrets
Let your fingers tangle in my hair
Nothing I’ll reject
In the emptiness we share

When eyes are half open
Vision blurs but we’ll see something more
Horses are frozen
Do you sense they’re eager now to soar?

Break free from the gate
Pound in the soft earth
Leave lanes behind us
We’ll veer into a left curve
Soar over the wall
And enter into a golden field
Hills we could fly
Surreal

Roll free the sun
Joyfully mindless
We’ll breathe in the sky
No worries no regrets
Soar over the walls
And wings from a bird, steal
Hills we could fly

Standing on toes
Perfectly still
Mountains made of sky
Could make a fall seem real
Over the hill
Track Name: Cathedral
Follow a lonely road
To my cathedral
Where nothing gets wasted
For all I’ve a place set
Your innocence won’t save you now

With you around
I can taste it
Warm blood beats inside
And my eyes will shine
To bring on the night
Knees will hit the ground
Tonight

In my cathedral
A bountiful meal
I’ll drink from your goblet
Let it overflow

With you around
I can taste it
Warm blood beats inside
And my eyes will shine
Bring on the night
Beautiful and full of life

Come here, come close
My arms are open wide

Come here, come close
My arms are open wide

Come here
Come close

Kneel down
Let go
You cannot hide

With you around
I can taste it
Warm blood beats inside
And my eyes will shine
Bring on the night
Track Name: Synaptic Edge
Cells divide
Inside my head
I take my time
Nature hurts
I know
The way it works
The way

We see past the walls
The synaptic edge
Spirit in flesh
Spirit in flesh

Not of this world
He passes over my grave
So close we’re nearly the same
So close we’re nearly the same
The same
The same
The same
Brain

Are we to dream
Tangled in the other?

Ahhh….
Together
Together
Ahhh…
Together

Are we to dream
Tangled in the other?
Track Name: Three Sisters
Three were the sisters
And he wanted one for his bride
The one who was pretty
As ever, did first catch his eye

So she was
A beautiful sight
But a jungle-cat
So gold were her eyes
They scared him…
So he passed her by

The next wasn’t pretty
But he liked the way she did smile
Like a surrender
And bended her hands like a child
But he wasn’t certain she was the best to be
When he closed that door, he bolted it tightly

Like the deepest, darkest water
Number three, a veil covered
Did he swoon with love?
Does rise the sun?
How he loved the one
Sweet as a sad song

Three were the sisters,
But only were two who did want him
One for his riches
The other, just ‘cause he’d arrived
But Melancholia could not so abide
She closed the door, and turned out the light

(Open, give me what I like)
Are we alone here?
(Fall in love)
Echoes to be
Each to pass by
Are we alone here?
(I’ll be alone)
Are we alone here?
Track Name: Carrion
Soar in time
Face the wind
And the doubt will grow
He wasn’t one to be alone

If I fall
Feel the need
Of the solid earth
He had the wings of a bird

Turn me under
Turn me in
Turn me back
Where we began
Let the golden bird fly free
He comes right back down
Does the carrion
Make him love the ground?

Wings
Are not broken
They could take you anywhere
Anywhere
Anywhere
Track Name: We Won't Say Goodbye
Happy am I
Sharing your life
Wonderful man
Marry me twice
For my chosen, never enough
We’ve come so far, my love

There are people who meet
(Oh, we won’t say goodbye)
Years spent close will end in grief
There are others proactively
(Oh, we won’t say goodbye)
Together decide to leave

Come to me my chosen one
We’ll live together just as one
I’d die for you in any way
Today, today, today, today

Happy am I
Sharing your grin
Sharing your hope
Living in sin
All that I need heaven to be
Is having you here with me

There are couples who split
(Oh, we won’t say goodbye)
Change and time will see to this
There are others proactively
(Oh, we won’t say goodbye)
Together, decide to leave

Wait for me to lose half my mind
Then my walker, I will leave behind

Come to me my chosen one
We’ll live together just as one
I’d die for you in any way
Today, today, today, today

With a kiss
Orange bottle of bliss
The veil will lift in time

When we go
Your hand I’ll hold
And it will be
Sublime
Ahhh…

Eternally
Come to me
Come to me
Track Name: Those Who Leave
Those who leave
Where do you go?
Where do you go?
When you die?

Enter a lake of fire
Food for a giant eagle
Wander the earth in shadow
As you believe so we shall
Body a broken bottle
Energy is immortal
Exit the world of ego
As you believe so we shall

When our time has come
Oblivion
Or something more?

Those who leave
Do you know love?
Feel my love?
All will be revealed

When it’s my, my time
Oblivion
Or something more
Those who could say
Don’t talk no more
Track Name: Face Of Love
We know we are
We know who we are…

I reveal the face of love
I reveal the face of love
We know we are
We know who we are…

You I adore
Face of the East
Colorful
Caught in the warm light
In a brutal peace
I know
Slowly
Take my chaos and I’ll
Kiss your dirty feet

You I adore
Heart of my heart
Keep us warm
Soft in the dark fire
In a womb of need
We know
Slowly
Every tear was just a
Wound needing to bleed

Does it shame you?
Does it shame you?
All wet when the tears
Relentlessly fall

Does it change you
When we come apart?
I know now
Only you could make me feel
What I do...
Now

Swallow me
In a warm light
In a brutal peace
I know
Slowly
Take my chaos and I’ll
Kiss your dirty feet
Track Name: Scorn
For my anger I’ll give you yours
As I sit here alone
I scorn

For the righteous I’ll give you more
Such the earth can’t endure

Human has no rage
Like love turned into hatred
So forced to radiate
Atoms degrade
Under my black haze

Human has no pain
Like love turned into hatred
Fire to bring the fall
No one escapes this
We are all human animal

Human
Human
Human scorn

Burn fire
Hell no fury ever knew
Only me
Man I’ll step upon
Speck in my eye
Speck in my eye
Track Name: Rosebush, Leaf, & Thorn
What is this my lavender rose?
Sleeping in the Autumn morn
In garden rich in bud and thorn

With petals aglow in soft rippling sleeves
Have you my secrete pleasure?
My hidden passion deep?
In your brilliant purple
Scenting dew air sweet
And my face embracing
Your sensuous bloom

Your perfume tasting pure and bold
As I hold the scissors at your throat
And snip you from your garden home
Of rosebush, leaf and thorn
Rosebush, leaf and thorn

Now you adorn my sunny windowsill
While sipping sugar water from a severed stem
I am, I am, I am lost again
In your… in your charm
Rosebush, leaf and thorn

Rosebush, leaf and thorn
Rosebush, leaf and thorn

What is this my lavender rose?
Sleeping in the Autumn morn
To grace the window of my home
With petals aglow in soft rippling sleeves
Have you my secrete pleasure?
My hidden passion deep?

Rosebush, leaf and thorn
Rosebush, leaf and thorn

Silently you begin to fade away
Petals drop and colors fade
So it goes
Track Name: All At Sea
Full away
As you feel
Nearly bursting
Under the one
Sail
Sail

Loose the cannon
Empty mind
Give them wings
And serpents will fly

Sail
Sail

All at sea
All at sea now
All at sea
All at sea now
