It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but I don’t like to give into nostalgia very often. The way I see things, you should always try to be moving forward. To be honest though, I do enjoy a peak back from time to time, especially with some of the bands I loved in the ’90s.
Reading band Tripwires are kindred spirits. During the past few years, I’ve seen them grow from a group that made slightly above average indie rock to one producing ace tunes that are firmly moving forward with just the proper amount of ’90s-drenched nostalgia.
Whilst the last few months has seen them in hibernation working on their debut album, they’ve announced a free download entitled “Emerald” with an accompanying video. The band plays a headline gig on 13/03 at the Old Queens Head in Islington, London.
