J-Math Rock. This is the only way to describe the all-girl band Tricot as they return with album #3 which is titled... 3. With 7 years experience together and numerous (and successful) tours, even supporting The Pixies at the iconic landmark (located in my home county of Cornwall) Eden Project.

Tricot bring a crazed blend of music to toy with your head as you try and captivate a flowing beat as wildly discorded guitar plays over a frantic drum beat in the opening track Tokyo Vampire Hotel with a clean vocals throughout the track. Following onto Wabi-Sabi is like listening to the less-evil twin of the opening track, with clearer sounding instruments but with the incredible technicality that brings the unique sound. Yosoiki becomes further more chilled, with a funky bass line, which then makes you believe these talented J-Rockers must have great Jazz music experience. DeDeDe has a really beautifully sung chorus, unfortunate to my lack of my language barrier, I'm not sure what the words mean in English, but the style of vocal range used works well. Sukima brings things back to basics after your head has been bouncing off the walls from the Jazz infused rock tracks that kicked off the album, with a very laid back, easy listening jam.
