It might be nearing December, but it’s never too late for a new song. Isn’t that right, Terra? The Melbourne alternative/pop punk five-piece have been building up their sound with each new release since 2019. If you thought ‘Frenemies’ was an outright banger, then prepare to go even harder with the band’s strongest single yet!
‘Arrows’ lurches straight into punchy high-energy drums, throwing us head first into the band’s sound that they’ve developed over the past two years. The emotionally-charged new track kinda harks back to Tonight Alive’s early days, and sees vocalist Cassie Sutton in her strongest vocal performance yet. The song also features Alt. vocalist Daniel Cullen-Richards over a thumping verse that adds a new dynamic we haven’t heard before. This latest single sees Terra push past their own doubts that’ll see them shine in front of overseas audiences.
“The imagery of arrows portrays a piercing internal catastrophization that slowly weighs you down and keeps you up at night. The song explores a loss of confidence and gives a snippet of the battle against your own internal monologue.”
But wait, there’s more! Terra have finally announced that they’ll be releasing the brand new EP, Reverie next year on February 4th. Alongside the aforementioned, the EP will include four more songs which I personally can’t wait to get my hands on. I’ve been waiting for an EP from these kids since forever ago.
‘Arrows’ also comes just in time for the band’s appearance on Knight & Day Festival this New Year, alongside Parkway Drive, Polaris, Trophy Eyes and fellow Melbourne pop punks Paperweight. With ‘Arrows’ out in the open and a highly anticipated new EP on the way, it looks like 2022 will be Terra’s biggest breakthrough yet!
