If you’re always on the lookout for raucously melodious revivals of 90s Alt Rock, you’re sure to find plenty of sticky-sweet aural nostalgia in the debut single “Caramel” from the up and coming artist Tripper and the Wild Things”.
Fans of Dinosaur Jr, the Pixies, Nirvana, and Sonic Youth definitely shouldn’t hang around before tuning into the grunge-soaked soundscape which may borrow fuzzy elements from the past, but there’s no disputing that Caramel is a track which practically drips with contemporary appeal. Instead of attempting to create a perfectly polished soundscape with excessive effects, Caramel isn’t so much a diamond in the rough, but both of them combined giving the track that comfortingly vintage raw appeal.
You can check out Tripper and the Wild Things’ single Caramel for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.
