"Trestrece Bio."

What do London, New York and Palma de Mallorca have in common?

For trestrece, they illustrate clearly the essence of the sound that they have been shaping over the last five years: The american rock sound's immediacy, the depths and shadows of British rock and the unique personality that living in the middle of the Mediterranean sea adds to the mix. The Killers and Foo Fighters, The Cure and Muse, and the best sounds of all the bands that Majorca has given to the world (Sexy Sadie, La Granja, Sunflowers or LA) meet and sprout in the voice of this new band.

And it's not by coincidence ...

Trestrece's history dates back to late 2000, when Javier Ruiz played with his previous band (The Nash) in the New York City landmark CBGB's club, being captivated by the magic and spirit of the New Wave acts that started out in there, and that was still present in the club's atmosphere, providing the name for the future project (as the club itself was located at No. 313-315 Bleecker Street). Javier had spent the previous two autumns sleeping in the apartment's sofa of his then band mate, John Tirado, on Manhattan's 14th Street. “We used to rehearse in his very apartment, he had all the gear there, set up in his front room, overlooking the street... it was pretty much like the movies, with people walking down the street and looking up to see where all that noise was coming from!”

The activity of the group was interrupted by Javi moving up to London in search of a break for his music and an old lover, where he would end up living for almost a year. There he would be part of  some of the City's bands, playing diametrically opposed styles (from punk to Indie rock). It was also in London where some of the ideas that were later to be included in the group's first demo, took shape. Javi shaped songs like "Azul" or "Caelsol" with a rudimentary cassette four track recorder in the room he rented in the suburb of Stoke Newington.

Upon his return to Mallorca towards the end of 2003, he decides to restart his musical activity, but this time with the determination to put voice to his own compositions. This task would lead him through a long learning process, which would help him develop a personal and unique voice, one of the most distinctive elements of the band's sound. “I had always wanted to sing, but never gave it a go... it's quite easy hiding behind your guitar, not having to undress yourself (emotionally speaking) in front of people. Singing is the ultimate trip in music, the real deal when it comes to connecting with the listener. And it's a long one too, i've been singing for almost five years now, and find myself only halfway to where i would like to be!”

The release in 2005 of his first official demo, EP2005, gets them a good number of positive reviews in the local press and Internet and a short tour around mainland Spain. Trestrece is also a finalist in the most prestigious music competitions in the Balearic Islands: Artjove, Musicnauta (2nd 2005) and SonoPalma (2nd 2007) and also 2nd in the nationwide Sinmarc Basic Amplifiers.

After two demos in 2006 and early 2007, it is towards the end of 2007 when the group starts recording "Una Señal" their debut album, made halfway between Mallorca and United States. The interaction of both sides of the Atlantic has resulted in a solid piece of work full of depth and details, with a modern european sound and the strength and boldness of American rock.

Recorded in one of Majorca's premier studios (Urban Produccions), musicians such as Tonet Toledo (Sexy Sadie, Ivan Ferreiro...), Sergio Martinez (Jet Lag, Javier Álvarez), Carlos Pilán (Sexy Sadie, L.A.) and Chus Coll (Marcel Cranc) collaborated in the recording, finally being mixed in New York by Ian Love, of Rival Schools, who had also mixed Walking Concert's debut album and collaborated live with Onelinedrawing. “We chose Ian after hearing what he had done for Walking Concert, we wanted that clear, punchy sound, plus Rival Schools debut is, in my opinion, one of the best albums of the nineties, so collaborating with him was a pretty emotional and personal decision as well”.

An emotionally intense and darkly beautiful rock record that goes much further than skin deep in exploring timeless and universal themes of love, friendship, strife, loss and determination in the face of all life delivers. The musical meeting point of Mallorca, London and New York is finally here: Its launch through Pupilo Records / Popstock is the signal that some have been waiting for a long time.
