One of the most popular topics that futurist tend to discuss is the marriage of humans with technology, leaving one to speculating as to what this unholy union might produce. Synth-pop music seemed to have tried to give us a tentative if unsatisfactory answer with the likes of Kraftwerk, The Human League, etc. However fresh and forward thinking those bands were the music tended to come off as sterile. Enter Trans Am. Fusing organic drum work with synthesizers and other electronics, Trans Am’s music is equal parts man and machine. The presence of the physical drums gives their electro tendencies a grittiness that most electro/synth bands severely lack. Having been around since the mid nineties, Trans Am continue to crank out their robotic jams well into the uncertain millenia while cluing us in as to what the future will sound like.
