TRIPLE THREAT, TRIPLE TREAT

Triple Engine
Triple Engine

Newly-formed Perth band, Triple Engine, are a triple threat, with Chris Gibbs on guitar/vocals, Craig Skelton on bass/vocals and Dan Skelton on drums/vocals.  And, yes, the Skelton connection is a father-son thing, which in my mind makes this whole thing even better; a triple threat and a triple treat.

‘Love Thing’ is a beautiful banger of a track that will fill dance floors as quickly as it fills hearts.

Debut single, ‘Love Thing’ is a track all about beginnings, getting on with the job and even, ooer, happy endings.  Opening with the lines, We’ve got some work to do / We’re ready for heavy lifting, this is a song about getting on with life and making the best of things.

These three musos haven’t wasted a single moment during the COVID lockdown, starting a band and then writing and recording their debut single, which comes at the world via the early 70s, courtesy of a Bad Company-esque opening riff, then blasts into anything from the 90s onwards with a chunky, chugging, bluesy guitar riff the likes of which a lot of well-known metal bands might like to lay claim to, but which is actually classic Chris Gibbs.

Laid over all of this are some groovy three-part harmonies and, at the appointed time, a guitar solo Eddie Van Halen himself would be proud of.

With all those influences, it would be easy to think the parts might not hang together to make a coherent whole.  Far from it!  ‘Love Thing’ is a beautiful banger of a track that will fill dance floors as quickly as it fills hearts.

If this is the beginning, we’re in high anticipation of what comes next.

As Craig Skelton said of his new outfit, “We’re the right tools for the job.”  Can’t argue with that.

‘Love Thing’ by Triple Engine will be released 1st August 2020. Available on all digital platforms and Noise-a-thon Records via CD Baby.

Triple Engine make their live debut on 22 August at the Civic Hotel with Black Steel and Jaime Page’s Dark Universe.  Get tickets here.
