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."
