Story of Trocadero
Narrated by Miles Luna
Named after a subway stop in Paris, Trocadero was formed in 1997 after Nico put up a bunch of flyers around Boston.
Since 2003, the band has become known for making music for the popular web comedy series Red vs. Blue. We've also had music in the Halo 2: LCE disc, Halo 3 Essentials Disc, and Bungie's ViDoc "O Brave New World."
Over the last 15 years, our sound has evolved while staying true to our core influences: Yo La Tengo, Ennio Morricone, X, Yoko Kanno, Daft Punk, Air, and Jean Michel Jarre. We've shifted from being an indie rock trio to collaborating with guest and session musicians, in a way returning to the original meaning of the word trocadero, which is "a place of trade" in old Portugese.
