Damn Terran are first and foremost, a live band. That’s their currency, and they’re not compromising that for anything else.
Their new track ‘Lost’ is essentially…Damn Terran. What else did you expect? There’s no mulling around here. ‘Lost’ is a pulsating post-grunge number – wrought by layers of drone-like guitar and the usual splattering of guttural vocal exchanges between Lachlan Ewbank and Ali E (Heavy Beach, Little Athletics, mag publisher, lady crush). The thing I love best about this track is that there’s hardly filler – it’s indicative and true to what you’ll get in a live setting from these guys. The ink blowing video accompanying the track by Grant Joslin is hell neat too.
Damn Terran have been recording their self-titled debut with the excellent Nao Anzai, with the 20th of September set in as a launch date. Get around it.
