Troumaca are quite clearly not of this Earth.
Sure, the band - and their birth certificates - might well state that they were born in Birmingham, but one glimpse at the group onstage tells another story. Colourful, flamboyant and wholly surreal, Troumaca's visual approach is every bit as eccentric as their music.
New single 'The Grace' is a rolling, tumbling, torrent of ideas, fusing Afrobeat inclinations with some homemade electronics. Out on November 11th, the single comes equipped with a remix from Berlin-based brotherly duo Kyodai.
First, though, the Birmingham newcomers have decided to piece together a video - and it's a bizarre affair. Featuring a visitor from outer space, a number of masked disguises and some dis-orienting visual effects, it's an unsettling - if appropriate - match for the music therein.
Watch it now.
