The Trolleyvox have completed work on their new masterpiece, Leap of Folly, and are now ready to share their opulent loveliness with an unsuspecting public. Fans of the band definitely suspect something grand and fine is at hand. It''s been blowing minds on a daily basis (mostly of neighbors and loved ones) and soon, it''ll be delighting your brain chemistry as well. Critics gushed over the "11 flawless pieces of pop perfection" (Magnet) featured on The Trolleyvox debut, Ephemera for the Future.
"For the sheer chills-down-your-back joy of pop music, you won''t do any better than this debut album." - Magnet
Guitarist/songwriter Andrew Chalfen (Wishniaks, Joey Sweeney) and his talented co-conspirators crafted a cool, sparkling glass of pop...a perfect lazy Sunday listen, full of chiming chords and winding melodies (Philadelphia City Paper)...the ringing, big, hollow-body Rickenbacker-Byrds kind in sonic approach. The unpretentious, cagey vocals from budding star Beth Filla soar and seduce, often in intricate harmony, and knockout drummer Ken Buono (Flight of Mavis, Buzz Zeemer, Dragstrip Courage) channels all that is great about the golden age of ''60s melodic drumming.
Wow. How do you top that? Well, with increased confidence, emotional depth and a more subtle compositional brush and palate, create an album of epic momentum that is at once reassuring and breathtaking. As on Ephemera, studio mastermind Adam Lasus (Madder Rose, Versus, Clem Snide) deftly sculpts The Trolleyvox studio sound in a way that is at once modern, yet informed by great recordings by the Beatles, Byrds, and Who. There does seem to be a bit of 1966-era innocence and possibility swirling about The Trolleyvox. Hit singles for imaginary radio stations! Folk rock for the post-hip! Their Leap of Folly could be your brand new discovery. You''ve taken a few leaps in your day, no? Be the first kid on your block to show ''em how it''s really done.
