Unearthed Review continues its inexorable progress through the Canberra musicians on the TripleJ Unearthed website.

Moving on through the “drummed” artists we come to The Trivs.

They have this to say about themselves:

They have supported independent touring artists de jour such as Art vs Science, Bluejuice, Philadelphia Grand Jury, Jonathan Boulet, The Dirty Secrets, Hungry Kids of Hungary, The Holidays, Tom Ugly, Skybombers and Calling All Cars, as well as sharing festival stage with the likes of The Grates, Boxer Rebellion, The Living End, Children Collide, British India, Red Riders and many more.

Their debut self-released extended player entitled “For Your Health” (produced by Dan Nash/Mastered by Willy Bowden) included “Survival guide for forgetful friends” which received play on JJJ via Unearthed, and also with the Hack report on JTV.

The band is currently working on a new songs to be recorded and released in 2010.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with The Trivs. It’s light bright modern rock pop somewhere between Muse and The Strokes.

But both of those bands have been a little tedious lately, and so are these guys really.

It doesn’t quite get me wanting to dance, it doesn’t really tug at my heart, or engage my intellect, or make me laugh.

It’s just there, pleasant enough, but in a world of crowded media alternatives why this over anything else?

It’s a little unfair to dump all my ennui on The Trivs, but sometimes life isn’t fair.

Three and a half stars.

What’s Your opinion?
