Between them, new jazz heads TriForce may only average nineteen years in age, but the talented foursome from South London communicate its language well beyond their years. Spotted by the keen ears and eyes at Jazz re:freshed, TriForce are the latest group to be championed through the label’s trademark 5ives series, joining Richard Spaven and the renowned Kaidi Tatham.
Today we’re delighted to premiere our favourite track ‘Righteous’ from the group’s beguiling debut EP, TriForce 5ive. Gently unfolding with meandering arpeggios and stroked augmented chords, guitarist Brown provides musical solace in a masterfully controlled opening. Eventually joined by keys, bass and drums, the piece continues to unfurl before reaching the middle section where the band only just hold off from rocking out, letting the melody lead the feeling. A semblance somewhere between Greg Howe and John Scofield, Brown who features heavily on Yussef Kamaal’s ‘Black Focus’, vibes throughout, as the band display cute restraint between more dynamic moments of hard hip-hop.
TriForce 5ive EP is out now, available in digital, CD and vinyl format. Grab it now from the Jazz re:freshed Bandcamp.
