Trans Upper Egypt debuts new track “CCTT”. Their self-titled album is out November 4th.
Trans Upper Egypt released a new deep cut, "CCTT" from their upcoming eponymous LP due out November 4th on Monofonus Press. The band have broke into our realm from Eastern Rome where concurrently they run their very own DIY space/venue called Forte Fanfulla (where the lp was recorded live to tape) that's fostered a garage-noise scene and has allowed them to experiment with live visuals, the record biz and creating linear, hypnotic music - a reflection of their love of Silver Apples, White Noise, Can, so on. IMPOSE debuted the song claiming Trans Upper Egypt "delve across genres, hopping from psych to krautrock to synthpunk, the vocals resound from somewhere massive and nebulous".

Regular touring throughout Italy, France and Switzerland have allowed Trans Upper Egypt to continue their polishing-not in the sonics, which remain fried as ever, but in the execution. After a 7" on WORT Records and first full length, North African Berserk (Monofonus Press) the quartet remain tight as ever. Drums in constant motion and bass that moves from bouncy to sinister competing with the syncopated dissonance of two synthesizers-spaceage sounds melting into a chainsaw fight, punctuated by scorched vocals. Trans Upper Egypt is: Cheb Samir on drums / Tab_ularasa on oscillators & effects / Leo Non on vox & keyboards / Bob Jr. on bass.

"the foursome take primal punk, psych rock, doom metal, and bits of synth pop and mash them all into a symphony of sounds and ideas as jarring and grating as it is gleefully infectious." - Consequence of Sound
"Trans Upper Egypt? More like Trance Upper Egypt!" - Impose
