Reviews of Troyka

 

01/07/2009 Jazzwise

“Ones to watch for 2009″

 

01/07/2009 Time Out

“Troyka are fast becoming a force to be reckoned with; like King Crimson for the iPod generation”.

 

21/06/2009 Observer Music Monthly ****

“On the strength of their powerful live shows, Troyka are widely tipped to create the kind of interest that Acoustic Ladyland and Polar Bear made when they first arrived on the London scene”.

 

01/07/0009 What The Critics Said

“…the virtuosity and power of the jamming makes your hair stand on end.” Guardian ****

“A fascinating conjunction of dance-derived beats, abstract electronica, ambient music, Schofield-like guitar funk, and John Zorn-ish free-iazz.” Guardian Film & Music

“Troyka are widely tipped to create the kind of interest that Acoustic Ladyland and Polar Bear made when they first arrived on the London scene.” Observer Music Monthly ****

“Mingus-meets-Motorhead melange of garage rock, improvised jazz, metronomic beats and extreme volume.” Independent ****

Cerebral without being self-consciously playful without seeming glib, this fine debut is simply
bursting with intelligence and wit. Jazzwise ****

“Troyka freely mix genres and influences, but their pallette is dance-based and heavily amplified.”
Financial Times

“Troyka are fast becoming a force to be reckoned with; like King Crimson for the iPod generation.”
Time Out

“Troyka are yet another young London combo who are inhabiting the increasingly vibrant scene that’s devoted to the uninhibited collision between jazz, rock, free improvisation and funky jamming.” BBC online

“The sound is stripped-down, intricate yet raw, even garage-bluesy in places, with a smart use of loops and a brilliant understanding of rock dynamics.” Metro

“Their hot math-rock licks compress throbbing dub bass, bristling bottleneck blues, gltichy Alphex Twin bleeps and excessively catching tunes into a gusty head spinning whirl of futuristic prog”. Time Out
