Three serious musicians having fun removing the border posts between traditional, classical, jazz, free improvisation, hardcore, post-rock and noise; Galician trio Trilitrate was formed in Vigo in 2012 by violinist Elena Vázquez, accordionist Marcos Padrón and guitarist and vocalist Rubén Abad – all classically trained but open to beauty in all its forms and eager to see to what sound-worlds their unusual line-up would take them to. It is a quest followed through three albums to date – the latest, Está de Grelo!, with the support of US indie label Ropeadope – developing audacious juxtapositions, staying one step ahead of the listener, who sometimes has to question: was that a Balkan theme? Baroque bluegrass? Classical math-metal? Ah, but now there are angels singing in Galician… oh well whatever, it’s a multi-faceted musical tapestry of innovative imagination, brimming with beauty.
