7/10 Robin Staff review, 22 December 2015

Krautrock: because sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name. And everyone’s happy that you came. And like the rhythms and beats of a sitcom, everything is just the way it should be every week, and the formula doesn’t detract from the good vibes, and also there’s a good bassline that I can’t extend the analogy to. Weaving their way through chill grooves and Follkakzoid-esque guitar motifs, Tross drop this EP with an assurance in what they’re doing and a willingness to let their songs pan the fuck out.

After opening on the no frills, Kraut rock intro that is “War of Apples”, Tross find themselves employing a bit of the ‘Future Days’ magic on “Stars & Cones”, stepping towards the beachier end of their favourite genre for sparkling, parasol synths and a bassline that wavers between moody and holidaying. It’s gorgeous and sublime without really even thinking to step out of place.

‘Coast To Coast’ is likely to either instil in you a heavy sense of relief or put you to sleep, and I think we can admit they’re neither bad states to be in; what I like most, though, is Tross’s ability to create an atmosphere without tying themselves to it. Check that raw, archeological dig of a bassline muddying up the sparkling electronics of “Rainbow”. The earth; the sky. They’re both nice places to be.
