Personal Best, the third album from Chichesters TRAAMS and their first in seven years, represents a band rebuilt from the ground up. After half a decade apart, all it took was a global pandemic to reaffirm their intense urge to create music together, and the limitations the situation brought with it ended up revolutionising their sound.
Though the band never officially broke up after the release of nine-minute behemoth A House On Fire and the subsequent tour at the end of 2017, a break made sense to all three members. I couldnt really write, and I didnt have the motivation to do anything musical. Im pretty sure I didnt pick up a guitar for 2 years, vocalist and guitarist Stuart Hopkins reflects. I was waiting for that feeling to come back. In the intervening years, the band went their separate ways. Padley making a record with his new project Social Haul, and Adam learning new instruments and buying up synthesisers. Eventually in 2019, Stu began tinkering away on two leftover TRAAMS songs, the ten-minute krautrock epic The Greyhound and the fidgety Intercontinental Radio Waves, which were then released in 2020. They had been left as instrumental demos with no vocal takes, and to be honest they were beginning to drive me a little mad, Stu recalls. I needed them finished and out of my head.
