traumahelikopter (lowercase intentional) have got it figured out: play short, fast, loud songs, and do it faster, louder, and more intensely than anyone else. This Dutch band from Groningen Noord is a trio, but with two guitars (no bass) and a minimal drum kit, they’re anything but traditional. Their unique setup and infinite energy give these punk anthems a fresh angle on the genre. They stopped by during CMJ to blast through some jams and chat about their music.
