A band raised in the Southern California sunshine, Trouble in the Wind has a sound that filters the
golden state’s surf-rock glow through layers of gritty folk with a twinge of country.
With momentum from their award-winning releases “Pineapple Moon” and the critically acclaimed “Lefty” the band is
poised to release one of their most ambitious projects to date, a new full-length record called “Hammer On.”
The new album releases July 20 th , 2018 on In Your Neighborhood Music, everywhere.
Hammer On’s tracks feature influences from Neil Young, Wilco, Dylan, even Springsteen and sultry sprinkles of the Yacht
Rock genre. Singles “Lone Starman” and “Touching Down” include multi instrumental flavorings that harken Wilco’s
groundbreaking “AM”, while “Tiki Bar” takes us on a fun yacht rock filled dance floor cruise and “Liberty Bell” shows
the bands edge beyond Americana into blistering dark side Neil Young sounds. But don’t forget “Fall Guy” with a chorus
to bring all the fans together with their mugs in the air singing “ooohh, ooooh, there’s a frog in my soul”. Happiness, love
struck, with a touch of darkness and comedy, it’s Trouble in the Wind.
The group's identity is driven by powerhouse front man Robby Gira, whose voice conjures memories of David Byrne’s
commanding delivery in “Stop Making Sense.” And like many of the great acts they've been compared to – including the
Talking Heads, Roy Orbison and Neil Young – they deliver a style layered with rich instrumentation.
TITW's music ranges from solemn, mournful tunes layered with pedal-steel to fun-loving, upbeat numbers with quick-paced
banjo plucking. TITW sways between genres, Americana, Alt Country and Rock Alternative. Their album tracks include
everything from party anthems to love songs. There is a cohesive nature to the band's sound, making it easy to identify a
familiar Trouble tune within the first few notes.
