Noisetrap is a Prague band that preaches the rules of the basementpop, which is based on simple guitar parts and dark synthesizer sounds massively supporting female vocals together in the front line.
The band is composed of: Lucie Bártová (vocals, bass), David Nový (guitar, programing), Alexandr Nikitin (synthesizer) and Petr Makovička (drums).
This basement foursome acts mainly on the Prague club scene. In the winter of 2013, they recorded a demo containing four singles - Cocaine Star, Dialogue, Trapped and She Plays the Game, which are now complimented by the tracks Numb and Noise Trap. Cocaine Star held the top position of a domestic chart called "Velká sedma" on Prague Radio 1 for 7 weeks.
The production of Noisetrap is to some extent influenced by various musical styles and productions of many artists of the world music scene. Elements of blues, trip-hop, post-punk or new wave are far from foreign to them and they inspire themselves in, for example, the production of Metric, Radiohead, Portishead, Depeche Mode, Oasis and many more. In Noisetrap lyrics there often appear unconventional themes, blending personalities in the story, their trains of thoughts and subsequent actions. Overall, the topic range of the lyrics tends towards gloomy spheres (hence the first part of the meaning of basement pop). Musical tastes and opinions on music production of the group members vary considerably, however they intersect at the point of Noisetrap.
Noisetrap was established in 2008, respectively a year earlier by means of collaboration between Lucie Bártová and David Nový. After swapping a few samples of their own musical material they met together again after more than one year in a musty basement studio in Žižkov (hence the second part of the meaning of basement pop) and there the original form of Noisetrap started to take shape. The members and the instrumental casting in the project was changing for several years. After the arrival of drummer Petr Makovička (2011) and subsequently keyboardist Alexandr Nikitin (2012) the band took its present form and began to operate under the name Noisetrap.
