“Things have been rather quiet round the Voxtrot camp these last two years,” writes Voxtrot’s Ramesh Srivastava on the band’s website, and indeed, the silence from the Austin quartet has been rather ominous. After a handful of acclaimed EPs that had them poised as the “next big thing” in indie-pop, the band’s self-titled 2007 debut was met with responses from fans and critics that ranged from muted to outright hostile. Was the experience discouraging enough to mean the end of Voxtrot? Thankfully, no. Though no new album (or EP, even) has been announced, the band has debuted a new single, “Trepanation Party” to coincide with a pair of shows on the occasion of the South By Southwest festival taking place in the band’s hometown. It’s a longer, slower kind of Voxtrot song, filled with dramatic keyboard flourishes and Beatles quotes, but it is still a new Voxtrot song, and coming from the lone fan of the band’s much-maligned debut, that can only be a good thing.
