PREMIERE: The Trp Are Feeling “better” With Nesta

The world loves a good mystery, and The Trp (pronounced The Trip), allows the imagination to run wild and free. Masked by random photos and soft colors, the unidentified collective releases this new tune, “better,” featuring Nesta, formally known as Zan. With fuzzy sounds and plunked melodies, it’s a funk tune that’ll turn a bad trip into a good day.

The lyrics are sung up close to a girl who can’t be reached, lost behind reflective crystals of self-doubt. She’s worried about drowning, but he’s there to remind her that she’s on solid ground. Just stroke the furry wall, everything will be alright. Nobody’s sinking. “We dropping acid to get/ Away from gravity’s pull,” our invisible man coos. “You the black Alice In Wonderland/ In 4k visuals.”

“On the surface, it’s someone having a bad trip then being comforted by a lover,” one of the cloaked group members tells MASS APPEAL over Wickr from their hideaway in the fifth dimension. “But on a deeper level, it’s about when you freak out or feel the world’s weight on your shoulders, then realize it’s all in your head. And everything is going to work out, you just needed to get out of your own way.”

After a string of warmly received loosies, The Trp is getting ready to drop their first EP, set for mid-summer and paired with visuals by IG artist Gab Bois.
