Published Jan 28, 2015Funky Ottawa residents Hilotrons wrapped up 2014 by sharing a music video from a forthcoming album, and now they've officially announced their latest full-length. The LP is called To Trip with Terpsichore, and it's due out on February 24 through Label Records/Record Centre Records.
In a statement, band leader Mike Dubue described the album as "live to tape — a dirty ritual — a raw diet… nothing slow." It was recorded and mixed by the band's own drummer Philip Shaw Bova at his Bova Lab Studio.
For a taste of this, check out a brand new video for the album cut "Real Game Changer" below. The song is a slinky, syncopated funk number, while the accompanying video uses simple practice space footage and overlays it with trippy visual effects. The previously unveiled clip for "Tackle the Strand" is also below.
If you're suitably impressed, To Trip with Terpsichore is available to pre-order on vinyl right here.
