♫ Calypso ♪ by The Traps

Posted on Updated on

Calypso’ is the first official release from The Traps on their own Birmingham based indie label Speech Fewapy Records. Combining upbeat tempos, an anthemic synth based beat, and a hooky guitar motif that will keep any indie dancefloor buzzing alongside a very cool vocal.

The influence behind the track and indeed their debut album is the character Calypso from Homer’s Odyssey poem who captures Homer by leading his ship ashore. 

Lead singer Jamie explains “I’ve always been fascinated by the character of Calypso in the Odyssey. I think it is because her story isn’t really dwelt upon, but she is a tragic and flawed character denied what she desires most and they are always the most interesting. The fact that she is rarely given a voice makes her all the more intriguing and once 
I’d decided to write about her in this song, the more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea of her story guiding and influencing all the music and lyrics on the record”.
