LA. band Trope release their latest single ‘Pareidolia’ which was just premiered on Louder and Prog Magazine. They also have news of their debut album release for ‘Eleutheromania’ which comes out March 31, 2021.
Trope is an alternative prog/rock band located in Hollywood, LA. Formed in 2016, the band have been perfecting their sound and songwriting, leading to their highly anticipated debut album Eleutheromania. Combining hypnotic rhythms with dark, progressive elements, singer Diana Studenberg gives the band their recognizable sound with her delicate-to-angst vocals which cascade dramatically atop their dynamic polyrhythms. Production began in 2018 in Vancouver with Mike Fraser engineering (AC/DC, Metallica, Van Halen) and David Bottrill creative consulting (Tool, Muse, Peter Gabriel).
Eleutheromania, meaning “a manic zeal for freedom”, is a prime example of their music which craves to break free from patterns. With influences ranging from 90’s alternative rock band’s including Soundgarden, Alice In Chains and Smashing Pumpkins, combined with elements of their love for the likes of Jeff Buckley, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, Trope have concocted an intoxicating and distinct sound that straddles progressive elements and time signatures with polyrhythms and melody.
Trope have performed shows internationally in Europe, Canada, the US and around Los Angeles in such legendary venues including LA’s Whisky A Go-Go and The Viper Room, as well as the world’s largest music festival, Summerfest, where they played the main stages in the past two consecutive years. Trope have also performed at the legendary Hollywood Improv in a more stripped down acoustic setting performing their songs in an intimate setting.
