Tropic Santos is an instrumental psych-stoner trio based in Milan, Italy, formed in 2018-2019.
The members of the band come from other underground situations and toured Europe back and forth. Marco, guitarist of the long-lasting Veracrash, Giulio’s roots belong to post-hardcore scene, and he was the drummer of SMNTCS, Luca plays the bass for the kraut/space-rockers Huge Molasses Tank Explodes.
The three fellas built up a psych-stoner-flavoured melt of captivating tribal grooves with wide hypnotic textures and uncommon paths for an instrumental band. Their vocal-less songs do sing.
By the end of Covid19 pandemic in 2022, the band started playing live, delivering a solid yet imaginative mass of sound that always captured the audience attention.
In fall 2022, Tropic Santos started a collaboration with producer Luca Ciffo (Traum, Fuzz Orchestra). In December, times were ripe for a live session recording that reveals the natural and uncut essence of TS. A 6-track flow of 33 minutes drawing the listener in Tropic Santos’ jungle maze. The record is called »Caccia Grossa« (in English: The Big Game).
The artwork was commissioned to the artist Zero Deluxe (@zerodeluxe).
Previously self-released in June 2023, »Caccia Grossa« is out now on all digital platforms via Argonauta Records, followed by CD edition by early 2024.
