Troller‘s recently released Graphic LP combines the ethereal dream pop of Cocteau Twins with a far more sinister post-punk skronk that is best understood as darkwave metal. It is a witches brew of guttural grooves and synth drones suitably felt standing in three inches of creeping fog. Next month, the Austin outfit will take that sound on an East Coast run that will land them in DIY dormitories and basements from Brooklyn to Boston.
The dates for the tour are viewable through a teaser directed by TC Johnson (and also below) and set to the ambient interlude “They Body” off Graphic.
