EDITORS’ NOTES

It was the soaring sound of uplifting trance that first gave Austin, Texas’ Tritonal their wings. But after their 2011 debut album Piercing the Quiet, the duo altered course: 2016’s Painting With Dreams shed the driving rhythms and ethereal melodies in favor of sumptuous future-house textures—and the occasional nod to straight-up pop. U & Me continues in that direction: Tempos are tempered by the recent influence of tropical house, and guest singers’ voices are pushed pleasingly front and center. They haven’t left the main stage behind—peak-time tracks like “Leaving Here Alone” and “Love U Right” are built to scale up—but by and large, this is the most deeply in touch with their feelings that Tritonal have ever gotten. It’s a good look: Highlights like “When I’m With U” and “Out My Mind” have the kind of emotional resonance that transcends dance music’s shifting winds.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Catchy Songs

I disagree with these negative reviews. Some of these songs has nice vocals with good uptempo beats. And a lot of these songs are very well crafted. Plus, you have to give respect for the people who put in a lot of time, just to make music for all of us.

I have a feeling I have heard this before...

Oh ya! That’s right! It’s just another recycled beat. I honestly can’t tell the difference between this album and songs written by other mainstream artists. Huge Tritonal fan up to this point. Absolutely disappointed. Recycle bottles, not beats.

I love sleep 😇💤 ,

they’re way better than this.

i’m seriously getting worried about the new album. I love Tritonal, but they’ve been putting out generic, boring, & uninteresting songs lately. so far, u & me is disappointing as hell compared to painting with dreams. painting with dreams was an actual good album. the rest of the u & me album better be good.

update:
i just listened to the album and i was right. disappointing as hell compared to painting with dreams. there was only 8 out of 19 songs i liked from this album. the rest were boring... so much blandness... tritonal used to be good... what happened...
