Synopsis

Since forming in 2012, For Tracy Hyde have gone through a few line-up changes, but the vibe of their music has remained unchanged: uplifting melodies and shimmery chords drenched in dreamy atmospheres, all on top of powerful and prominent beats. Influenced by old-school British shoegaze, bands on the Captured Tracks roster, ‘60s psych pop, and Japan’s own unique and rich J-Pop scene, the band have constantly churned out brightly-coloured dream pop tunes sung largely in their native tongue, with the occasional English song here and there on their last two albums. In addition to playing with countless local shoegaze and indie bands, they have opened for international acts such as Hazel English (AU/US), Sobs (SG), Cosmic Child (SG), Lucid Express (FKA Thud, HK) and The Embassy (SE).

 

Their fourth album, Ethernity, released on 17 February 2021, saw the band have exploring new and unlikely territory, drawing inspiration from the great history of American rock music. In doing so, they have managed to fuse their signature sound with elements of grunge, emo, slowcore, folk rock, and even bits of country and trap, to create dynamic and lively tunes that simultaneously drive and glisten, resulting in a masterpiece that has been embraced by critics and fans alike. 2022 has already seen the departure of one of the band’s original members, long-standing guitarist U-1, but even so, they are determined to carry on, with their fifth album Hotel Insomnia in the works. So far, they have teased three songs from this upcoming album, namely Milkshake, Undulate, and Estuary, that push their Anglophilic tendencies to the furthest with the heaviest shoegaze tones they’ve ever made to date.
