Trippy Hearts

Boise, ID

Boise-based Trippy Hearts make witchy/wavy/moody/melodic music on the hopeful edge of the existential ache. Loud/soft indie rock. Jenn Sutkowski is on Rhodes electric piano and vocals, Brent Heiner on guitar, and Stephen Samuelson on baritone guitar, bass, and drums. The trio started as a long-distance idea until Brent and Jenn moved to Boise to make it a reality. Brent, Jenn, and Steve wrote Lacewing (released January 2021) and recorded it at Rabbitbrush Audio in Boise with Z.V. House, and Mell Dettmer at Studio Soli in Seattle mastered it. Hyrum Haeberle joined them on bass for two years until amicably parting. The trio’s songs are heartfelt with feelings of yearning for home, wherever that is, and ambivalence toward modern life. But there are bright edges, too, because music is cathartic.
