Los Angeles based Trofeo bask in synth laden waves of psychedelic, darkwave, synth pop with their single, "Game of Glass." Encapsulated by samba and latin rhythmic foundations (with Samuel Aguirre on guitar, Carlos Vides on keys, and Ryan Moraga on percussion), Ericka Sance's vocals draw distant memories of Rita Lee, Bebel Gilberto with a twist of Blonde Redhead, the kind of illustrious tone that alters from haunting to danceable in a matter of measures. https://soundcloud.com/
Drawing upon the influences of long standing artists such as Depeche Mode, Chico Buarque, Os Mutantes and New Order/Joy Division, Trofeo delivers a mesmerizingly kaleidoscopic sound that is as rhythmically menacing as it is lyrically seductive.
With an anticipated EP release in the fall 2014 on Manimal, Trofeo emerges as a new voice with an entity all its own---each performance both embracing and transforming a genre.
