It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Tera Melos. Four years to be exact. And, oh my, are they back with a vengeance.
Having spent their downtime engaged in multiple endeavours – from contributing guitar to Death Grips’ The Powers That B album to finishing a college degree – the band have returned with a focus that can only be born from rest, rejuvenation and creative fluidity.
Released back in the summer, Trash Generator, the trio’s third full length, is an astonishing blast of confidence and energy. The performances are brilliant and sharp, the songs concise yet intricately detailed, and the album production deftly captures the band’s strength as a live unit.
