Picking up on the disparities between a band’s debut and sophomore efforts can yield an intriguing blend of contrast. Perhaps the material becomes emboldened, continuing much in the same ilk yet maturing over time. Or maybe a group unanimously embraces radical reinvention for the second go-round.

Regardless, it’s very rare that the music from album one will sound remotely close to an ensemble’s more recent endeavors.

For Richmond, Virginia’s pop-bombastic The Trillions, the progression from their debut Tritones to last January’s Superposition is the difference of four years and one hell of a musical evolution. Not just in taste–although the explosive drums and fuzzy drenched hooks have become less frenetic and more spacious.

On Superposition the listener can hear an unmistakable turn towards finesse that can only spring from a markedly improved musical caliber and approach to songwriting.

But enough words, check out the tunes for yourself.

And don’t forget to check out the Discovery Artist feature on The Trillions!
