What’s Terry been up to? Five years on from their last album, I’m Terry (UTR 111CD/LP/Y-LP, 2018), the Australian post-punk quartet proudly present their new record, Call Me Terry. Terry is made up of pairs Amy Hill and Al Montfort, and Xanthe Waite and Zephyr Pavey who started playing together for the fun of it in 2016. Seven years, four albums and three EPs later, Terry is ready to pick up the phone again. Over the past few years Terry have kept themselves busy — but not only with Terry things. On top of numerous releases with alternating side projects (Constant Mongrel, The UV Race, Primo!, Sleeper & Snake, Chateau, Rocky, etc.) members of Terry have moved interstate, undertaken studies, had children and started new fields of work. Terry began sharing the demos for Call Me Terry online with each other in 2020 before getting together in 2021 at their trusty rehearsal space to record the beds. Overdubs were completed at Terry’s homes over the following year. Lyrically, in true Terry fashion, the record wastes no time in scrutinizing Australia’s corrupt, colonial history. Musically, Call Me Terry still has the classic Terry sound; the four vocals singing as one gang, sharp guitars and quirky, burbling synths, the rolling bass and drums, all amidst their clever, dancey pop songs. Since day dot it’s been hard to reference a band that really sounds like Terry, which is always amazing.
