Lava Tramp Offers Hauntingly Catchy Tunes

(PRBuzz.com) May 6, 2013 -- The jangly, hypnotic ramblings of Los Angeles' Brian Wilson, Lava Tramp offers hauntingly catchy tunes that blend the energy of an impulsive road trip with the harmonious beckoning of a lucid dream. Lava Tramp, at their core, is a fusion of shoegaze and electro-pop that retains its intimacy even as it seems to sprawl out into space.

Lava Tramp has been busy for a band that is only 3 years old. They have already performed in over 500 shows, and have received various awards such as the 2011 Best New Artist (Festival di Musica, Rome), 2012 Emerging Artist of the Year Nomination (Indie Focus), and the 2012 Featured Artist in Jamsphere Magazine. The band also had international tours in Russia, Italy, France, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, Ukraine and Dubai.

Lava Tramp

Hailing from Los Angeles, by way of Atlanta, Lava Tramp is an electronic project whose music is a really cool and unique blend of “French touch” electronics with an indie-pop flavor to spice things up a little. LT manages to create a sound that is a really cool balance of their influences, at times colorful and upbeat, at other times intimate and cosy, almost venturing to the edges of shoegaze and dream-pop, but with a more melodic approach.

Originally a project of eclectic singer / songwriter and composer Brian Wilson, Lava Tramp went on to evolve a full line up featuring a set of musicians with different background and attitude, each bringing something unique to the mix. Wilson, alongside piano player Larry Johnson and guitarist George Buck strive to create a sound that has been compared to the likes of M83, MGMT, Youth Lagoon or Friendly Fires.

The band has been quite busy, counting over 200 shows around the world and countless media features over the past 3 years in support of their music.

LAVA TRAMP Deliver Harmonious Electronic Auditory Gems!

Rating: 5.0/5

Lead singer and multi-instrumentalist, Brian Wilson, grew up in Atlanta, GA playing in folk, hip-hop, indie, and electronic bands. This diverse musical palette allowed him the ability to experiment with a wide array of sounds, eventually laying the groundwork for the early sounds of French electronic band, Lava Tramp, based in Los Angeles.

After a lengthy audition process, Wilson landed the opportunity to tour with 7-Time Grammy-winning musician, Al Jarreau. Throughout the tours, Wilson gathered various musicians with different backgrounds, including, piano player, Larry Johnson, and electric guitarist, George Buck, who formed the core members of the Lava Tramp.

Lava Tramp and Brian Wilson embrace the creative nature of his songs. When listening to his catalog of music, you realize what electronic music can be with the right person behind the synths, sliders, and sounds. On songs like “Control” and “Blindfolds”, Wilson expands this idea by placing an increased importance on songwriting, arrangements and pop sensibilities. His songs are, what I would determine, Ambient Electronic Pop in the purest sense of the genre, in that they have more to do with atmosphere and mood, than simple rhythm and dance.

Lava Tramp’s songs are not loud, crass, overrated pop-dance-techno anthems. Brian Wilson’s music is something truly special that utilizes cleverly thought-out compositions and instrumentation, successfully transmitting a seemingly unattainable, illusory soundscape. Ethereal voices, eclectic sounds and understated but solid beats, blend into a sea of delicious, soothing, and harmonious auditory gems. It is in that precise instant, that Lave Tramp’s musical compositions transcend genre to become categorically sublime.

Through his songs, Wilson proves that he can create ‘cinematic’ inclined music, as he is able to paint pictures so vividly through sound that it’s almost like a hallucination in broad daylight. His music engulfs you, making you insanely happy in one moment, and then making you want to cry the next. It’s music that will accompany you through a variety of emotional states, and yet it is still be able to simply make you want to dance or rock out, as on “Je vous encule tous” or “Ghost Robot”.

Pop and progressive influences blend into Lava Tramp’s electronic base, to create a sound that is accessible as it is creative and unique. And when someone like 7-Time Grammy-Winning Musician, Al Jarreau says of their live performance: “Lava Tramp has played the best set I have come across in years.” You’d better believe it!

Lava Tramp, who has played over 200 shows in the past 3 years, continues to tour and play gigs in Russia, Ukraine, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, and France, and will write and record music for their next album in their new studio in Los Angeles.

Biography

The guys in Lava Tramp formed out of the collective desire to create expansive electronic music grounded in synthesizers and analog sequencers.

Lead singer and multi-instrumentalist, Brian Wilson, grew up in Atlanta, GA playing in folk, hip-hop, indie, and electronic bands. This diverse musical palette afforded him the ability to experiment with a wide array of sounds, eventually laying the groundwork for the early sounds of Lava Tramp. After a lengthy audition process, Wilson landed the opportunity to tour with 7-Time Grammy-winning musician, Al Jarreau. Through one of his collaborating partners, Brian met acclaimed producer, Jasia, and started forming the early sounds of Lava Tramp.

They have evolved into a solid entity worthy of the comparisons to M83, MGMT, and Youth Lagoon. Lava Tramp continues to tour and play gigs in Russia, Ukraine, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, and France, and will write and record music for their next album in their new studio in Los Angeles.
