Indie Spotlight: Gothic Tropic

Posted in News on January 4, 2012

Los Angeles trio Gothic Tropic introduces some hard edges to the playful world of psych-pop. Gothic Tropic finds inspiration from high energy afro-cuban beats, and exuberant guitars. The brainchild of Cecilia Della Peruti, Gothic Tropic keeps the vibe measured and darkly bizarre with a unique lead guitar/vocal style that recalls catchy elements of pre-punk 70s acts such as Television, Captain Beefheart, and Can. Bassist Daniel Denton (Metric) and drummer Liv Marisco (Cold War Kids) have pushed a quick and steady evolution in Gothic Tropic’s short history, growing from a collection of Della Peruti’s loop station jams to one of Los Angeles’ more exciting new acts in just a matter of months. Get a copy of their debut “Awesome Problems EP” and enjoy the lo-fi while you can.
