Tryonics - Single Review: Hey

08 Feb 2022 // A review by Darryl Baser

Tryonics is the solo project of Hap Richardson, formerly of My Little Pony, Go Victim and Freezer Child.

And that’s about there is to know about Tryonics, apart from a growing catalogue of tunes.

The latest in the tune in the one man band’s catalogue, and it’s a dead-set banger, simply called Hey.

The song starts as it continues, with an up-tempo groove, and a solid back-beat at more than 100 bpm, angular guitars spasm and punctuate, sometimes on the ones and threes, sometimes in counterpoint. Hap’s voice is in the mix, not prominent enough to make all the words clear.

You know how pigeon-holing music into categories is odious, well, it is genuinely bloody hard to put this song into a box. If I had to call it anything apart from ‘brilliant’, ‘addictive’ or a ‘banger’, I’d use words like a great blend of up-tempo groove with great smatterings of angular post punk.

It is a song that if radio or the interwebs picked it up it could blow up huge.

At 2:23 long it is the type of song which can easily be played many times in a row.

Rating: ( 4 / 5 )

VÏKÆ - EP Review: Love Games
25 Aug 2022 // by Darryl Baser
Veronika Bell, known to music fans as Vikae, has been composing and producing music for a good few years, and is gaining some crossover traction between the dance and pop worlds. While she writes many of her tunes on a piano, and can perform them beautifully with piano and her impressive voice, it is the dance-styled pop versions of her tune which have been garnering her acclaim.
