Hamilton, ON’s Tripper and the Wild Thingsbrand of noisy, high energy rock is balanced by melodies that invoke their ’90s surf rock and alternative roots, with themes of lo-fi ’80s pop. The four-piece outfit consists of Josh Keillor on vocals and guitar, Eric Tarquinio on bass, James Puntillo on guitar, and Brian MacMahon on drums.

Produced by Marco Bressette, Tripper’s new single, “Juno,” was one of the first songs penned as a full band and touches on themes of growth and self-awareness.
