Trupa Trupa w cyklu Tiny Desk

„This week we’re taking the Tiny Desk (home) concerts international. In a basement in Gdańsk, we find Poland’s great rock band Trupa Trupa on lockdown. Had it not been for COVID-19, this band would have been behind my desk this week, but as it is, they’ve settled into their rehearsal space. Singer Grzegorz Kwiatkowski has dusted off an acoustic guitar. At the same time, Rafał Wojczal plays his homemade instruments, including one that sounds a bit like an ondes Martenot or a theremin, but is as of this recording unnamed. Even with the sound level down, the energetic rhythms of Wojciech Juchniewicz on bass and Tomasz Pawluczuk on drums punch through.

Grzegorz tells us that life in Poland has been difficult in this young democracy, but they are staying optimistic and playing music. Trupa Trupa opens its set with „Another Day,” from the 2019 record Of The Sun. I’ve seen them perform this; it’s always had an apocalyptic feel, but now the words „another day, waiting for another,” prompts Grzegorz to mention how this has turned into a quarantine song. There’s darkness in the basement, yet their music is a bright beacon.”

Wywiad na łamach holenderskiego magazynu Front

Trupa Trupa ziet het felste licht vanuit de donkerste tunnels.

Er zijn weinig bands die de duisternis zo goed kennen als Trupa Trupa. De experimentele postrockgroep komt immers uit Gdańsk, de Poolse stad die historisch ook als Danzig bekend staat. Het is de stad waar in 1939 de Duitse invasie van Polen begon en waar tienduizenden mensen het leven lieten in concentratiekamp Stutthof. Het is de stad waar meesterpessimist Arthur Schopenhauer geboren werd en waar vorig jaar de progressieve burgemeester Paweł Adamowicz tijdens een benefietevenement werd vermoord. Maar juist nu de wereld een van de grootste crises sinds de Tweede Wereldoorlog doormaakt, ziet voorman Grzegorz Kwiatkowski reden voor vertrouwen.

Recenzja EP – Triangle Music Collective

I’ve been corresponding with Grzegorz Kwiatkowski, singer and guitarist of Polish post-punk-art-psych outfit Trupa Trupa for a few years now. I was feeling pretty down last week (and maybe it seeped into my column (okay, it did)), and I told Grzegorz a bit about some of the stuff that was bothering me. He had the most helpful and reassuring reply. Dalej Recenzja EP – Triangle Music Collective
