Sydney’s Triple One today share their latest single “Salina,” the second glimpse of their debut album Panic Force due for release this October.
With crunching guitars, skittering trap drums, emo-inflected vocals, and a falling, crystal-clear melody, “Salina’” recalls the group’s earliest experiments in genre and texture, with one foot, firmly placed in the world of gritty underground rap and the other in heartfelt indie rock.
Boasting sharp production and a wealth of hooks, “Salina” blows the Triple One sound up to the most refined degree yet, as they ready their debut album for release. Touching on themes of feeling lost and aimless underneath the weight of life’s difficult choices, the single paints an evocative portrait of long nights spent with indecision and regret swirling around in the head; a devil on one shoulder, an angel on the other. In doing so, it demonstrates once more why the group’s emotional acuity cuts so deep: formidable bars delivered with venom and open-hearted honesty.
Vocalist Marty Bugatti shares that “‘Salina’ is about heartbreak and how it often leads to self-destructive behaviour. It’s also about trying really hard but never quite reaching your own expectations and then taking it out on other people because you can’t admit your own wrongs”, while Lil Dijon describes the track as being about “a battle of choices, and dealing with the consequences when the choices are made.”
Triple One first gained a US fanbase on Lil Peep’s Spotify playlist ‘Teardrop,’ and then by garnering millions of views for their videos via tastemaker YouTube channel, Astari. While growing a solid online listenership internationally, the Sydney supergroup has become a staple act in the burgeoning Sydney/Australian rap scene, coming up with the likes of The Kid Laroi and OneFour, among others. In Australia, they sold out their 2019 national headlining tour, played show-stealing sets at festivals like Listen Out, Hidden, and Falls Festival as well as securing opening slots for Rich Brian, Lil Xan, Smokepurpp, among others. Garnering cosigns from DJ Booth, Highsnobiety, Elevator, No Jumper, and almost every Australian outlet, Triple One are poised as ever to make their international debut.
