What happens when you add 1 part Canadian and 1 part Australian? Nobody knows, but this little experiment will go on. After spending lots of time down in Australia, The Trip have decided to make North America our home. Spending time in between their beloved Canada and Los Angeles, The Trip aim to travel the road as far as it will take them, playing their music and eating at road stop diners till their hearts stop.
With the release of their debut self-titled album, The Trip have caught the attention of some big names like ESPN and MTV. MTV even named “On The First Time” their video of the week, further expanding The Trip’s fan base. In fact, they have already begun to make a name for themselves here, playing at NYC’s CMJ Music Marathon and selling out shows in LA in October 2011.
Described as a keen-edged fusion of danceable electronic rock and often compared to early Red Hot Chili Peppers, Maroon 5, and The Script with an added funk twist, The Trip’s self-titled debut is filled with catchy hooks and melodies that please the ear and make the feet want to start moving. With a new album under their belt, these self-proclaimed frisbee champions are ready to take the US by storm. This trip has only begun.
