Reminiscent of the post Nirvana mid-’90s scene with a hint of a ’70s Brit-pop-punk hybrid. - The Concord Insider

The Tripping Souls release their debut EP, Tripping Souls. The brainchild of New England native Paul Makris, The Tripping Souls’ sound clearly reflects Brit-rock influences—The Beatles, Paul Weller, and Oasis, among others—from Paul’s youth and from his time spent in London. Although Paul’s influences cover several decades, there is a cool modernity about The Tripping Souls that blends well with its familiar feel.
Paul started life in New Hampshire, studying music while he was growing up and performing on guitar, bass, keyboards, and lead vox in various bands throughout his school years, but his path eventually lead him to Chicago for three years where he frequented the blues clubs. Makris soon moved on to Boston, where he could be found at the Paradise Rock Club or somewhere on Landsdowne Street. Inevitably, Paul Makris also found his way to Europe, absorbing the sounds of London and Hamburg. Throughout his journey, Paul maintained his focus on music, listening, writing and playing whenever possible.
Paul began recording songs with the legendary Brian Charles (The Sheila Divine, Tanya Donelly, The Figgs) at Zippah Studios in Brighton, Massachusetts in the summer of 2012 with Wayne Whittaker on bass, and Ben Marino and Steve Chaggaris splitting the drum duties. Produced by Paul and Brian, this EP delivers the fresh, melodic sound of The Tripping Souls.
