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.
