Iration: A Trolley Show

Santa Barbara band performs 'One Way Track' on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford

It seems crazy that Iration is the first reggae band we’ve featured on A Trolley Show, but as we enter the laid-back rhythms of summer, it couldn’t make more sense. And Iration, whose 2013 album Automatic topped Billboard’s Reggae Albums Chart upon its release, is the perfect band to lead us into an easy-going, seasonal daze.

In this episode of A Trolley Show, the Santa Barbara band performs the appropriately titled “One Way Track.” Stripped down to just acoustic guitars, the song sounds folkish, thereby diminishing the repetition that plagues most reggae tunes, as well as giving it a world-worn edge.
