It’d be easy to assume that a band called “Trailer Trash Tracys” would drift towards twangy Americana, where broken love and moonshine fuel their creative output. But not so. This British quartet are, in a nutshell, a space-haze rock band, in the vein of the Raveonettes, or more recently, Yuck. But the Tracy’s incorporate airy pop elements and drum machines into their aesthetic — thus, avoiding the redundancy of those trapped in a Jesus and Mary Chain revival spiral. Such is evident on “You Wish You Were Red,” the second track from the band’s forthcoming debut, Ester. Suzanne Aztoria’s vocals sound ethereal and faded, guitars are subtle and melodic, and the bass tends to take the steering wheel. Take note: this song is just a slice of a multitude of layers this band seems to have.
Ester is out January 9 on Double Six/Domino.Trailer Trash Tracys - You Wish You Were Red
