Troika album launch
Three years since the release of their last album, "zero-one", Christchurch atmospheric-rock trio Troika are back with a new release titled "My brain is a receiver".
Sonically following on in a similar fashion to the largely instrumental "zero-one", the band has nonetheless reintroduced more of a focus on vocal-led melodies, with all three members contributing. The songwriting again journeys between quiet, melodic mood-pieces to longer, dynamic passages that build to a crashing 'wall of sound' crescendo.
They're joined on the night by fellow art-noise veterans No Broadcast and instrumental prog-alt rockers Möbius, paying a rare visit to Christchurch especially for the occasion.
