TRAAMS return with their second album, Modern Dancing. Recorded and produced by MJ of Hookworms at Suburban Home Studios in Leeds, where the band located briefly, the album is the follow up to their 2013 debut Grin.. Following the success of that
debut album release, TRAAMS have spent the last couple of years bringing their frantic, high-energy performances to various festivals and venues across Europe and the U.S., opening for the likes of Wire,
Fucked Up, Parquet Courts, Royal Blood and more.
Their second album Modern Dancing captures the energy of their live performances and draws a wealth of brooding aggression and krautrock infused-post punk. They have adapted the charisma of White Denim’s experimentalism and early Modest Mouse’ indie guitar pop to fit their own generation’s drowsy indie ethos.

Off to a great start piggybacking off of the fame that their previously released singles that got remasters for the album (Athens, France and Sunglasses) got, they really delivered here. With the mix of skill levels of each performer (none bad, but I mean more of their tone), there’s a rich feeling in each song. Each one paints a picture if you listen in. Easily one of, if not, the best album of the year and dare I say the decade. rm--
