Trippy Hearts started as a long distance idea for a band between Boise and Boston with old friends (L to R) Stephen Samuelson, Jenn Sutkowski, and Brent Heiner in 2013, but Jenn and Brent ended up moving to Boise to make the idea more of a reality. With Jenn on a Rhodes electric piano and vocals, Steve (of Dark Swallows) playing baritone guitar and bass, and Brent on guitar, the trio wrote and recorded an album at Rabbitbrush Audio with Z.V. House in the spring of 2019, which they will release soon. Steve also plays drums on the record, so the trio decided to add a member. They are grateful to have Hyrum Haeberle (also of Dark Swallows) joining on bass.
TH’s have a moody/melodic, witchy/wavy quality that seems to naturally occur in the music with a good dose of a quiet/loud aspect. The songs are heartfelt with feelings of yearning for home, wherever that is, and ambivalence toward modern life. But there are bright edges, too, because music is cathartic.
They look forward to being a more active part of the thriving Boise music scene.
Check out several of their songs from their upcoming album (Winter 2021) Lacewinghere, on Bandcamp.
