For years, Triathalon has built its sound off of surf-inflected dream pop, the band’s former home base of Savannah washing its jams in waves of reverb. Recently, the core trio of Adam Intrator, Chad Scott Chilton and Hunter Jayne relocated, and their sound has acclimated to the hustle and bustle of their new stomping grounds, New York City. The influence of ’90s R&B has grown more present, too, with Triathalon’s recent full-length, Online, showcasing a less guitar-driven sound in favor of programmed beats, synths and Intrator’s front-and-center falsetto. Let the latest iteration of the band croon you and swoon you at Caledonia alongside fellow New Yorkers Innerwave and Athens’ New Madrid.
