Rising Artist: Tricot

Even though the world is so connected these days and becomes increasingly smaller, sometimes you can still get surprised to find something new even when it has been out for a bit. That is the case with Japan's Tricot. A trio of kick-ass females who combine math-rock sensibilities and center it around their singer Ikkyu Nakajima's unique vocals and range. The DIY band are a hit in the Japanese underground, and with a few EP's and their 2013 debut, have all been self-released and received much acclaim in their native land. Now, as they look to make a splash internationally, it doesn't matter if you don't know what they are saying, it is proving that our universal language is giving us new frontiers.
