a word from the Triangles:
Recorded between November 2005 and January 2007 at the Immortal Combat Sound Facility in Melbourne, 75YP features thirteen new songs, each of which is filled with words and musical notes that have been†carefully arranged into detailed sequences and patterns†for your listening pleasure. The recipe?Three or four handfuls of†psychedelic pop,†two quarts of†country and western, a dash of folk rock (beaten lightly) and then season to taste with lyric booklet and coriander. Want to hear for yourself? Sample tracks from†the new album†can be downloaded from the Triangles' website†which, incidentally, has had a bit of cosmetic surgery lately and is looking at least ten years younger.

Originally released on July 2005. Re-releassed June 2010.

Melbourne's the Triangles take over Spain with their song Applejack in Estrella Damm's 2010 summer ad campaign. That's the band playing in it. In the last week of May 2010 it was the #1 song on iTunes in Spain and that was even before the ad hit the tv screens, all due to Youtube, the internet and good ol' word-of-mouth.

The Triangles, from Melbourne, are self-described as 'three girls and two guys who like to play fun and frantic high energy folk-pop' and came to the attention of Half A Cow Records with their demo of the wonderful 'Let's Replace The Cityscapes'. It didn't take much for the label to be persuaded to get behind The Triangles' new album Magic Johnson.

Featuring twelve joyful singalong songs, Magic Johnson is a hand-clapping, foot-stomping, head-nodding rollercoaster ride of an album. A radio single of 'Let's Replace The Cityscapes' has been sent to radio and already has received airplay on Triple J and Melbourne community radio. Firm friends since High School, The Triangles put on a very original and energetic live show and will be gaining a lot of attention from their shows they will be playing to support the new album.

review:
Listen to the opening of 'Applejack', the first song on Melbourne five-piece pop troupeís second album Magic Johnson, and youíd swear youíre listening to a cross between the Sesame Street title theme, and the Polyphonic Spree. It shouldnít work, but somehow it does Ė the sound of the Triangles is so delightfully cheery and apoplectically delightful that itís hard to resist Magic Johnson. Where fellow Melbourne-ites Architecture in Helsinki are awfully clever about the way they pull everything together, the Triangles have more of a wide-eyed innocence to their sound. Such as it is, you get moments like the simply delightful 'Letís Replace the Cityscapes', where the pop melody bounces along merrily. The Triangles self-recorded Magic Johnson, and the sound is occasionally thin and lightweight, but itís nothing that isnít made up for by the sheer quality of the songs. Itís hard to believe that a band like the Triangles can fly under the radar as effectively as they have. While Magic Johnson is their second album, not too many would know much of the band, but you get the sense that this is all going to change. Thereís no denying Magic Johnson Ė it glides so smoothly across the hardwood. - the Electric Newspaper
