Named after a West Indian Village on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent, Birmingham based Troumaca are as much a melting pot of sound as they are bound together by their longstanding heritage. Marrying the best bits of UK bass culture and great British songwriting, Troumaca occupy a musical space all of their own but are blessed with a sound that is instantly loveable. Referencing Caribbean gospel and its soulful harmonies as a major influence in their song arrangements, Troumaca’s sound carries a tropical swing. Surely that’s no surprise, seeing as they’re from Britain’s sunniest city: ‘Birmingham is both our parent and our love child; rotund and wonderful’. Staunchly loyal to their hometown, Troumaca had been causing a stir in the Midlands for some time before they popped up on Gilles P’s radar, and he promptly signed them up.
Citing everything from vintage Timbaland productions for the likes of Ginuwine and Aaliyah; classic UKG and grime; Radiohead and local legends Steel Pulse and UB40 as influences and inspirations, the close knit 5-piece seem perfectly at home balancing cosy bass weight and clattering drums with skittering electronics, Highlife guitar licks and infectious hooks.
Fiercely independent and fully embracing the DIY aesthetic the band also conceive and create their own artwork and videos.
