|Album title||A Drop for Neptune|
|Any more information you would like to tell us?|
‘A Drop for Neptune’ is a culmination of 4 years of musical kinship that started on the traditional music scene in Glasgow, when the band members moved to the city and began studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. The band bonded instantly over their shared excitement for traditional music and TRIP was founded.
Their debut album features a blend of self-penned tunes and songs, and the traditional melodies of Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man; a reflection of the different Celtic nations each member hails from. ‘A Drop for Neptune’ celebrates the band’s kindred roots in traditional music whilst showcasing their contemporary, cross-genre influences.
In a time of uncertainty and isolation that was brought about by the global pandemic, this record was inspired by the sea - something that connects and shapes us all. Tracks such as ‘September Sea’ and ‘The Ninth Wave’ evoke imagery of an ever-changing sea, whilst ‘Turning tide’ is a homage to growing up on an island surrounded by it. ‘Towards the storm’ explores a journey from calm seas to ‘The eye of the storm’ - a stand out tune on the album.
