The quartet's latest long-play album entitled Jolly New Songs was released in October.
"I listened to the record and not only does it have those elements of Sigur Ros and Radiohead that I like, but they've got an entirely different, I would say, even darker character of their own,” Rolling Stone’s David Fricke told New York's SiriusXM radio station.
Earlier, the US edition of Newsweek magazine named Jolly New Songs one of 11 overlooked albums of 2017.
The magazine’s Zach Schonfeld said that the “eccentric” Polish band’s album “is worth your time and dollars”.
“The band is Polish and the lyrics are in English, but the undercurrent of anxiety and dread that distinguishes Trupa Trupa’s music knows no nationality,” Schonfeld’s review in Newsweek read.
A review by Polish website Onet said the band was “slowly becoming a hit export”.
Trupa Trupa's members are Grzegorz Kwiatkowski, Tomek Pawluczuk, Wojtek Juchniewicz and Rafał Wojczal.
Trupa Trupa released its first album, Headache, in 2015 and Headache Remastered was re-released the next year. (vb/pk)
