Part of the “new school” of reggae, Los Angeles band Tomorrows Bad Seeds have been crafting a chilled out sound since forming in 2001. Their Southern California influences play a distinct role in their sound with a heady mix of reggae, rock and pop. From Hood B-Boy Street to Surf/Skate Beach Culture, these boys emerged into a multi-cultural musical phenomenon with a cause. Currently consisting of Moises Juarez (lead-vocals), Matthew McEwan (vocals/guitar), Patrick Salmon (drums), and Andre Davis (bass), the band has only continued to gain new fans drawn to a sound that is just as good for a party on the beach as it is for a late night bong sesh.
Though their genre may not get a lot of credit for its musicianship, the members of Tomorrows Bad Seeds have proven to be extremely talented musicians, vocalists and entertainers as a whole. Their live show provides a high-energy performance that will have you craving more. Since the band’s inception, they have shared the stage with the likes of UB40, 311, Pennywise, Smashing Pumpkins, The Wailers, and Fishbone, to name a few.
In 2010, they released their debut album Early Prayers only to follow it up with their sophomore record Sacred For Sale. This Friday, March 30th, the band is getting to drop a new single and today Glide is excited to present an exclusive premiere. With a thick, dubbed out groove and a touch of a West Coast hip-hop beat, “Trinity” is reggae at first listen but also shows that there are more complex musical dynamics in place. There is also a catchy melody and a chorus that one can imagine a huge crowd singing along to. The usual laid back reggae positivity is in place, but there is also a higher energy to this track that makes it totally danceable.
Reflecting on the inspiration for the song and the process of recording, the band has this to say:
“The track was recorded at Island Empire recording studios in the beautiful city of Carson, CA produced by Mets Mcewan and Chaz ‘Rox’ Toney encompassing the street side of the beach shooting the video both in Hermosa and at the Roadium in Gardena, CA where I spent lots of summers helping my dad sell at the swap meet. As for the song meaning, Trinity is a comeback song. Like the Phoenix rising out of the ashes into a new more mature body paying respect to life and love. Life is the mission and love is the message. The message is living life over everything respecting each other and remaining humble in this concrete jungle.”
