Scottish rock trio Triptych have released their second single “It’s Lonely Being An Astronauts Cat” and it’s accompanying video directed by Colin Black from their forthcoming debut album Sundown out later this year via Grunge Pop Records.
Triptych are the new rock sound of Glasgow, Scotland. Loud riffs influenced by Nirvana, Biffy Clyro, Tokyo Police Club, Delta Sleep and Fugazi, this dynamic trio fuses off-time rhythmic meters and progressive math rock ideals, forging today’s New Alt Indie and post-alternative grunge into one.
Formed as childhood friends in 2012 by Finn Hennessy on vocals and guitar, Jake Bhattacharyya on bass, and Matt Cunningham on drums, Triptych have signed a multi-album deal with Grunge Pop Records and are set to release their debut album in the fall of 2022.
Glasgow, one of the most powerful musical cities globally, has given the music world Big Country, Franz Ferdinand, Primal Scream, The Jesus And Mary Chain, Mogwai, Chvrches, Teenage Fanclub, Simple Minds, Belle & Sebastian and many more, yet there’s nothing more exciting than introducing a new band. Here comes Triptych.
Here’s what the singer/guitarist Finn Hennessy said about the track:
“The lyrics in this song are about wanting to reach out and be there for someone when they need help the most but not knowing how to talk to them about it, or how to help. It’s about pushing away emotions and family. When someone so close to you is going through a rough time it can be really hard on you as well.
The music video plays on the title of the song but also escapism that comes with everything I just discussed.”
