Trifler Comes Clean

by Cauterised



The Trifler has come clean.

Following 2 EPs of noisy static filled soundtracks and a radical re-working of ethno-dance pop band Delerium, The Trifler has decided to do something different and pushed the sound of Cauterised into new territories.

The noise levels have dropped but the cut-up experimentation and soundtrack noir feel has been pushed to the front. This has created a new sound that pieces together old time jazz, broken funk, exotica and easy listening voodoo.

By sampling and manipulating half remembered and rare source material, The Trifler has begun a journey into an imaginary film soundtrack world, where everything seems familiar and alien at the same time and where dread and humour lurk in the same dark shadows pulling at each other in a never ending battle neither of them will ever win.
