RIDICULAS TRIXX


RIDICULAS TRIXX

A unique vocal range coupled with burning heavy rock guitar work, often erupting into a classic, yet alternative sound. No matter how the music is described, the Oswego, Kansas-based musicians clearly are engaging. Known for having an ear bending amplitude and attitude, they create a bit of a change from traditional rock concepts, while maintaining similar creative listening impressions. There is more.

The current single from Ridiculas Trixx, “Waterfalls Are Beautiful,” features a brief but striking guitar intro with superb sonics and texture. Before long, vocals arrive, accompanied by just the axe work, making for a compelling mix. At 40 seconds the drums kick in and the complete song begins to fly. Influences including Judas Priest, Halestorm and Evanescence can be heard. Yet Ridiculas Trixx, a trio, owns the sound of “Waterfalls Are Beautiful,” especially with the lyrics: “Hey yeah waterfalls are beautiful/not the tears coming down my face/waterfalls are beautiful/not the tears from a heartbreak.”

Cascading water of any scale can be impressive and pleasing to look at and so is the video for Ridiculas Trixx’ “Waterfalls Are Beautiful,” by Rosemary Butterfly. The imagery, in color and black and white, comes and goes with an earthy artistic stylization. Well synced with the music, at times the visuals portray dimensionality and foreshortening before returning to a 2D celluloid feeling. Meanwhile, abstract Jackson Pollack-type splashes turn to real life flowers moving in slow motion before the scenery becomes a landscape of invented stalagmites. But if you thought that was all there is to Ridiculas Trixx, think again.

Another band highlight, “Surrender,” is an electric rock retrogression featuring stellar vocals. The guitar chords are powered and thick with just the right amount of recorded presence. “Surrender,” another example of Ridiculas Trixx’ knack for creating original melodies, could draw comparisons to Heart. Taking a look on the band’s official website, the 4:28 “Getcha Some” stands out with a slower sludge rock tempo and rhythm. Plus, check out the drum fills. The Ridiculas Trixx Soundcloud page has a number of other tracks, including the somewhat blues infused “Don’t Cha.”
