OK, so this isn't technically new, but it definitely put a smile on our faces this morning. The Tripwire was first introduced to the Liverpool based group Hot Club De Paris in Austin at the Levi's/FADER Fort. Yes, we watched a British band with a French city referenced in their name in Texas. Makes your head spin just a bit, right? Our entire staff fell for these lads, and have been waiting for somebody in the States to release their debut album, Drop It 'Til It Pops, which is out now in the UK on Moshi Moshi.
Since it is Friday, take a little break from the job and enjoy the video for their single, "Shipwreck." It came out earlier this year, but it is still definitely worth revisiting. We bet you'll be chanting along by the end of this one.... "SHIP! WRECK!" Good times.
