Triple Engine launch debut music video

Love Thing is the hot debut single from newly formed Perth-based power trio Triple Engine. Written and record during the Western Australia’s coronavirus lockdown, Love Thing combines positive lyrics with crunching guitars, bass and drums to deliver an uplifting modern power trio sensation.

Guitarist Chris Gibbs and bassist Craig Skelton were messaging each other about the effect the lockdown was having on them as working – or rather, no longer working – musicians. Craig mentioned an idea about a new, original power trio, and before the day was over TRIPLE ENGINE is born.

Four days later drummer and purveyor of hair Daniel Skelton is on board and debut single Love Thing is in the works, having been entirely written via phone and video calls. By July of 2020, TRIPLE ENGINE had recorded and mixed the single, completed filming of the accompanying debut music video, and had secured its debut performance. And all of this (video shoot aside) without the trio ever being in the same room, let alone the same town!

“The process of writing and developing the song via phone and video calls informed the overall direction and arrangement. The song became a duet for that very reason: Craig and I were trading melodic ideas by singing different sections onto the demo recordings and that provided the way forward.” – singer/guitarist Chris Gibbs

Love Thing is bouncy and fun, iressistably catchy and cool, and features a scorching solo from Gibbs. The tune and its video are exactly what we need right now to buoy our spirits until regular service is resumed for rock and roll.

Love Thing invites you into the band’s mindset during lockdown and places a positive spin on sharing the load, staying on target and working together.

“So why the overalls? It’s all about the mechanics of music!” – drummer Dan Skelton

All instruments and vocals were recorded in the players’ home studios. The band then sent the takes to noted Perth producer Elliot Smith at the renowned Sundown Studios to mix the single, with the mastering completed by James Newhouse at Lamb Chop in Bunbury WA.

TRIPLE ENGINE is motivated and influenced by the spirit of blues rock trios such as Cream, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and ZZ Top. The prog-rock spirit of Rush and the pop sensibilities of The Police mesh with the gravitas of Zeppelin and the humour of Van Halen to help shape a formidable musical machine.

Triple Engine debut live on Saturday, 22nd August at The Civic Hotel for a huge gig christened BREAKING THE CHAINS, also featuring Jaime Page’s Dark Universe and Black Steel
