Tricot: third album, new music videos and butterflies! [Updated!]
Next week Tricot will release its long-awaited third full length, titled 3, on the 17th of May and yesterday they dropped a new music video to promote the album. The video sees the three girls doing mostly everyday things… backwards. And actually it follows another new track & video that was released about a month ago and while the new one, Melon Soda is on the pop side of the Tricot sound, DeDeDe represented their math-rock influences a bit more, with a bit of a reggae touch in the beginning and it also had a very interesting CGI video. The album itself will have 13 tracks altogether and will be released in two very different versions: the “minimal version”, that comes in a plain jewel case without booklet and a deluxe edition that comes in a special box, will have the 13 tracks divided to three CDs and will be limited to 999 copies and sold only through Tower Records in Japan. Check the videos, the artwork and the track listing below! And if you haven’t yet, check the exclusive Tricot interview from last year!
Updated (2017.05.27): Another new video for the album, this time for Tokyo Vampire Hotel, a track that starts out surprisingly raw and punk rockish, before switching back to the more typical melodic pop-rock of Tricot:
