Gdańsk, Poland’s Trupa Trupa just released their new album B FLAT A, that, according to frontman Grzegorz Kwiatkowski, explores “the wasteland of human nature where hatred and genocide are not just distant reverberations of Central European history but still resonate in contemporary reality,” and does so via visceral komische and post-punk inspired rock. You can listen to the whole album below.
The album’s opening salvo, “Moving,” has gotten two separate video treatments that complete a cycle of videos that started with “Twitch” and “Uniforms.” “The album B FLAT A tells about the mechanism of decay and the end of this cycle is not just one, but two stories,” explains Grzegorz. “The video for the song “Moving” has its two versions – B FLAT directed by Keesan Nam, refers to the story from the first two clips, and the version of FLAT A directed by Aleksander Makowski, acts as its reverse submerged in the subconscious and psychedelic.”
We’ve got the premiere of the “Moving (FLAT A)” video, and you can watch that, along with the “Moving (B FLAT)” video, “Twitch” and “Uniforms,” below.
Trupa Trupa will be on tour in the US this spring, including a NYC show at Mercury Lounge on April 29. All dates are listed below.
