There's a number of exciting Birmingham bands emerging at the moment and Troumaca are one of those, along with the likes of Peace and Swim Deep. Troumaca recently announced their debut release of sorts, 'The Gems', a three-track EP that will be freely downloadable from December 12th. The EP showcases their mix of influences ranging from dub and soul, each with an appropriately tropical tinge - naming themselves after the Caribbean island of Troumaca.
Two of the EP's tracks are available below, lead track 'Fire' with its pervasive sub-bass/dub-bass and the Friendly Fires-esque 'Sanctify' - the latter also being available to download now. 'Layou (Dub)' will follow soon enough. No news on a release on a record label so far but perhaps 2012 will see the crossover potential of Troumaca rewarded further.
