About Trouble in the Streets
Formed in 2014, Trouble in The Streets, an electronic/pop/hip-hop music trio based out of Austin,Texas is gearing up for a brand new single this fall in collaboration with a local nonprofit record label. Composed of band mates Nnedi Agbaroji (vocals/keys/bass guitar), Andy Leonard (synth/keys/bass/producer)) and new drummer Kenny Schwartz, the band is excited to announce the release of their new single, “Dreaming of Forever,” out Friday, Nov. 18. The trio is teaming up with Austin’s first 501(c)(3) non-profit record label Spaceflight Records, whose mission is to develop, promote and advance the careers of musicians and recording artists, on its new release. They’ve joined a roster of Austin music friends at the label, including Calliope Musicals, DOSSEY, Golden Dawn Arkestra, and Kalu and The ElectricJoint. The single will serve as the first in a series of singles off a new full-length album out in 2023.
In their eight years of playing together, the band has performed explosive concerts across the country, including Joshua Tree Music Festival, SXSW festival, Utopiafest, and Backwoods. When they’re not performing in Austin’s top venues and festivals nationwide, Agbaroji and Leonard frequent music festivals together, connecting to new genres and styles of music that continue to inspire their sound. “Dreaming of Forever” was co-written by Agbaroji and Leonard right before the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2019. Produced by Matt Meli, featuring Carter Arrington on guitar, this is also the last song with the band’s original drummer Bobby Snakes. The lyrics, while confrontational and uncompromising, are also hopeful - serving as an invitation for other outsiders to join the rebellion. The new single is the band’s first release since its self-released 4-song EP Rule Breaker in 2019.
"The last few years, in Austin and across the world, I've seen people show up for each other," said Agbaroji. “‘Dreaming of Forever’ is about reminding people to encourage other people while encouraging yourself; that’s how we’re going to progress and move forward as a society. We need to see ourselves in each other and remember the lessons we were taught growing up about being good people."
Everything about the up-and-coming Austin music trio is designed to defy expectations. During a time of conformity, Trouble in The Streets continues to break genre limitations by crafting a style and sound all their own. Showcasing novel combinations of sounds while astonishing fans with their high-intensity performances is what has put Troublein The Streets in the spotlight as sonic agitators and a force to be reckoned with from Austin, Texas. "We gel well and both love finding new forms of inspiration to pull from, while always remaining true to ourselves and not becomingthe thing that is inspiring us," says Agbaroji of creating music with Leonard.
The band’s unique style has been dubbed as “Electro Tribe,'' but they are also known for their wide range of sounds, including hip-hop, R&B, pop, and electronic. Trouble in The Street’s unique sound and onstage persona has garnered the attention of publications such as Afropunk, HuffPost and The Austin Chronicle, who named them as the “Best New Band” in 2018 and voted them as third for “Best Electronic Act” in 2019.
In just eight years, the band has opened for nationally and internationally-touring artists such as George Clinton, Big Freedia, Phantogram, Bob Moses, Papadosio, Adam Deitch (Lettuce/Break Science), and many others.
“Dreaming of Forever” will be released Friday, Nov. 18 and will be available for purchase on Apple Music and streaming across all major platforms.
