Show Review

When Emma Oppen and Keith Brower Brown of Trails and Ways graduated from UC Berkley, they both took off to opposite sides of the globe - Oppen headed to Spain, and KBB to Brazil. Upon returning, they each brought home the souveniers of their musical experiences. Together, they assembled the four-piece group that self-describes their unique sound as bossanova dream pop. A few weeks back, we shared their song "Como Te Vas" as our inaugural Single Serving, as its tropical rhythm was as radiant as a palmed paradise.

As we alluded to in the Single Serving, we recently recorded Trails and Waves live in Austin during Hype Hotel's stellar Thursday night lineup which also included the likes of Kodaline, Beach Fossils, and The Specials. With their vibrant fusion of intercontinental pop, this quartet kicked the night into gear with infectious tunes off their forthcoming album Trilingual.

Show me shapes, spiral lines I can't translate
And leave your mark, felt tip pen Your tag, my chest

Te esconder, desaparecer, nunca Nunca, nunca

You tell me your city is only a maze Of walls and laws you just can't obey
You cannot find answers these days That tattoo on the city
arms, on the city face
I want to tell you how you'll understand I will nunca nunca
Te esconder, desaparecer, nunca Nunca, nunca

- Hi, everybody, we're Trails and Ways.
We've got some songs we want to play for you.
Next up is a song by our drummer Ian Quirk, in the back.
I want to make room for you Hope that you want to make room for me
Room for me
I want to get through to you Hope that you're not through with me
Through with me
You make me want to
ah ah ah ah
You make me really want to work it out You make me really want to really want
to make me want to
ah ah ah ah
You make me really want to work it out You make me really want to, want to,
want to, true for you
You make me want to be true for me True for me
I want to be new for you You know you'll always feel new to me
New to me
You make me want to
ah ah ah ah
But I really want to work it out But I really want to really want to make
me want to
ah ah ah ah
You make me really want to work it out You make me really want to want to want
me want to
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
You make me want to ah ah ah ah
You make me really want to work it out You make me really want to really want
to make me want to ah ah ah ah
You make me really want to work it out You make me really want to want to want
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
You took me to the mountains You held all of me in your hands
My wariness cracked like a stone
I told you to fall for me Just to test the line
I meant that and I meant that alone
You deserve some kind of warning It'd be, it'd be it'd better be better
If I, if I didn't fall if I didn't fall for you
It'd be better if I didn't fall for you
You're so strong You're just hanging there laughing
Like a lure to me
Am I so wrong?
- My fingers are white with your chalk
You're so strong It's time I tell you that
You deserve some kind of warning It'd be, it'd be it'd be better
If I, if I didn't fall if I didn't fall for you
It'd be, it'd be it'd be better It'd better be better
But I know you'd catch me, it's written In that mountain tune
Yeah, I know you'd catch me, it's written In that mountain tune
Clamber on up me, I want you to Clamber on up me, clamber on up me
Clamber on up me, I want you to
Clamber on up me, I want you to
I saw a secret city
Out itself in place and time I felt open shutters
It's made me false We are marching for something
Bigger than I can hold We are marching for somewhere
Somewhere I've not been told
I try to say something I can't take back
Loving the light on your face Tuesday fast asleep
A city map with no red lines No real estate that's history
Light beyond capital You're part culpable
Is that so radical Was that was, was that was
Was that was that what was that what we were fighting for
Then I tried to say something I can't take back
She stayed, waiting She stayed, waiting
She stayed, waiting She stayed, waiting Lightly on capital Your heart palpable Is that so radical
Was that what, was that what Was that what you were fighting for
She said she said She said she said
She said she said She said, waiting I saw a secret city I saw a secret city
- Goodnight, everybody we're Trails and Ways.
