New York-based trio Triathalon have share “Running”. The track is taken from their forthcoming album, Spin, available August 19, via Lex Records (Eyedress, MF Doom, Fly Anakin). “We went full cowboy mode for the breakup song of the summer,” the band says about the new song / video.

Spin was recorded live, featuring mixing by Gabe Wax (Adrianne Lenker, Fleet Foxes,) mastering by Zeroh (Pink Siifu, Eyedress,) and written, produced and recorded by the band themselves. The album is an inherently transformative record—the product of years of work, both on the self and as a collective, drawing inspiration from Frank Ocean, Alex G, 90’s jungle, drum & bass, rap music circa yesterday and the Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour.

Forming in Savannah, the band—which began as the solo project of Adam Intrator before Chad Chilton and Hunter Jayne joined in 2011—relocated to New York City after performing together for nearly a decade in Georgia. Their new music is a snapshot of Triathalon’s evolution and growth—tracing a journey of sonic self-reflection, of being lost in your thoughts and watching the world around you change as a result.
