Shalosh’s debut album "The Bell Garden" (2014) earned the Israeli trio the respect of the international press. In it they blended lyrical passages with strong grooves, and jazz and rock elements are infused with Oriental influences. Paying musical tribute to Nirvana, Brahms and The Bad Plus, the self-produced follow-up album "Rules of Oppression" is also a great achievement – at times chamber music-like, at times anthemic and opulent, with the piano, bass and drums complemented by a seven-strong wind ensemble and string quartet.
In addition to their own compositions, the three Tel Avivers also perform cover versions of songs such as Lana del Rey’s “Video Games”, which is given a nine-minute improvised make-over on that album. Not quite jazz, not quite rock, Shalosh make life difficult for genre fetishists. They prefer to describe their music as “acoustic progressive music”.
