Gerringong favourites The Terrys have delivered their long-awaited debut album, True Colour.
Produced by long-time collaborator Jack Nigro (Skegss, DMA’S, Julia Jacklin, Middle Kids), the easy-going release is laced with anthemic sing-a-long moments and bright sonics, leaning into their established surf-rock output whilst also expanding on their sound. Weaving together threads of garage, psychedelia, funk and hip hop, True Colour has a little something for everyone. The album explores the tropes of everyday life; falling in and out of love, the camaraderie of friendship and finding you path in your early twenties.
"I hope they will listen to it and gain a sense that life is actually nice… that when they hear the record they can look outside and think ‘Oh, today's going to be a good day'," frontman Jacob Finch explains. "I hope they get a sense of life and ultimately make their own decisions on what the lyrics mean to them… that's why it's True Colour. We want them to think "What's your true colour?"
The five-piece team up with Bliss & Eso's Esoterik and Scraps on Good Day, which serves as the albums latest single. "I actually met the boys on a plane… I was already seated and they walked on and instantly I was like ahh here comes a band, the amount of noise they were making. They didn’t notice me until the end of the flight, I got up and they start yelling out "Oiiii Esso mate!!" Some business guy next to me started shooting me a look like who do you think you are, then one of TheTerrys’ leaned over to him and said "This bloke's only one of the most iconic rappers in the country!" We kicked it off from that moment onwards. The boys hit me up a while later asking if I wanted to be on their track, and I was like always down to listen… and here we are. Love the track, love the boys." Esoterik shares.
The Terrys will embark on a national tour in support of the album, kicking off in Brisbane on October 22. The run of shows will continue on to Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Sydney and Hobart, before two shows in Melbourne to round out the tour. Along for the ride is Nerve, Gold Fang, Dear Sunday and Good Shift for select shows, with tickets on sale now!
