    It distills what has made Trupa Trupa a must-see in past years at music conferences such as South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.

    Trupa Trupa’s ongoing refusal to engage with anyone but themselves is certainly addictive to listen to.

    Not unlike The Twilight Sad’s mastery of making an emotional impact with the combination of a few choice blunt images and a monolithic musical arrangement, Of the Sun derives a good portion of its power from persistence. Trupa Trupa continue to hit the mark as they experiment with simplification without excising the art from their rock.

    Gripping and energetic record. [Nov 2019, p.91]

    The songs do not proceed through conventional structures—they lock into deceptively simplistic refrains and then mutate and warp like carcasses exposed to sun. ... When the band strays from post-punk aggression, results are mixed.

    The band’s fourth album, Of the Sun, doesn’t so much directly address the state of the world as vividly conjure the day-to-day sensation of existing within it, forever teetering on the tightrope walk between luminous ugliness and awful bliss.

    Over its twelve tracks, the listener is taken down the proverbial rabbit hole as Grzegorz Kwiatkowski's hypnotic and repetitive lyrical attack lulls you along. This isn't an album that grabs you by the collar, but rather builds tension and release as it lures you through the dark thickets of your mind.
