TrinityRoots share Haiku - new single and video

22 August 2014 - 0 Comments

Seminal Aotearoa musical roots triptych, TrinityRoots unveil a fresh-off-the-press offering. Haiku is the first single release off the new yet to be named TrinityRoots album due to be released in true TrinityRoots style; when its ready.
 
Warren Maxwell describes the track, "Haiku is a song of optimism and hope for our youth. It's conception began from observing and talking to some of our younger generation about their feelings of despondency towards their own lives and certain 'photo-shopped' expectations of modern society. “

TrinityRoots - a boil-up of ingredients that seemed to embody the very essence of our home, land and sea, and serve as an invocation to that same environment. The influences that the group brought together joined the dots between head-nodding reggae, slow-burning funk and jazz adventurism to form undeniably indigenous waiata, unconstrained by genre boxes. 
 
Following on from their perfectly formed self-titled EP in 2001, TrinityRoots expanded their palette of sounds on two long players, True (2002) and Home, Land and Sea (2004), releases that were rewarded with platinum sales, setting the stage for other home grown independent successes that followed. And then, they left us in 2005 to pursue new projects, taking their individual energies to groups like Little Bushman, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Breaks Co-op and Eru Dangerspiel. 2010 saw a resurgence of TrinityRoots with the release of their Music Is Choice live CD and DVD package as well as the band reformation. The openness and honesty contained within that last release – musically and personally – illustrates exactly why Trinity are so special to so many people.
 
Since reforming in 2010 there have been sold out tours within NZ, shows with Fat Freddy's Drop & Ladi6, festival performances at WOMAD NZ, Homegrown, Rippon Open Air & Coromandel Gold all topped off with their Australian debut, being a main stage performance at the prestigious Byron Bay Blues Festival – Australia included two sold out performances in Melbourne and Sydney and a set at the Natural NZ Music Festival in Perth.
 
Now, buoyed by seemingly boundless renewed energies flowing around the band, TrinityRoots have recruited a new cornerstone - drummer/vocalist Ben Lemi. A multi-instrumentalist composer from Wellington, Ben has been contributing to the NZ music scene for the last 10 years. A Jazz Performance graduate of the NZ School of Music, he became involved with various local bands and as a guitarist/drummer/bass player and singer, he has recorded and performed with various NZ acts across the country and internationally. More recently he has been working with Amiria Grenell, Newtown Rocksteady, Rhombus and French For Rabbits and now, TrinityRoots… these three together in TrinityRoots now, truly are brothers-in-musical-arms.
 
"As an artist I feel honoured to help carry this momentum that has been so positively built up and supported over the years. This new chapter for Trinity is being written beat by beat and note by note, so at this point I'm just really looking forward to the challenges." Ben Lemi..
 
TrinityRoots, are about to head back into famed Wellington recording outlet - Surgery Studios.  At the helm is famed recording engineer & producer Lee (Doc) Prebble, to push record on what will be their 3rd studio album, due for release in 2014/15.
