VIDEO PREMIERE: TRAPS PS “NEW CHANTS” (LIVE)

June 28th, 2018 | News

Hard-charging L.A. post-punk outfit Traps PS (previously reviewed here) have something better than just a new single: this bristly live version of their song “New Chants,” the Gang of Four-meets-“Paranoid Time” title track to their similarly short and sharp new full-length coming in August on Innovative Leisure. (Pre-order here!) “Chants” was filmed at the Buttertones’ release show at the Regent and serves as an extremely accurate example of the nervous energy Traps PS has mastered. After a few local-ish dates next month, they’ll head out on tour with new labelmates De Lux—full national schedule below!
