Melbourne’s premier alt-rock masterminds Terra have returned with their first taste of music in two years, premiering ‘Confidence’ today ahead of its Friday release.
First formed in 2014, Terra were quick to make a name for themselves as leaders of the alt-rock scene, writing and recording a collection of stunning tracks in no time.
By 2017, the group had released their Wasted Days EP, which featured tracks like the catchy ‘Save Me’, and resulted in a sold-out hometown EP launch. However, after two years between releases (and a bit of a lineup switch), the group are back in a big way, delivering the mesmerising ‘Confidence’ today.
A huge return to form for the group, ‘Confidence’ sees Terra discussing relatable themes about figuring out one’s own self-worth, and looks at feelings of strength and power in overcoming disappointment and dependence on role models.
“‘Confidence’ is about breaking dependence on role models in order to find identity from within,” explains front-woman Cassie Sutton. “The song explores transforming the experience of being let down into self-worth and strength.
“‘Confidence’ uses the bitterness of disappointment to progress from naivety to the realisation that people have flaws and weaknesses.”
Featuring massive vocals from David De La Hoz of Belle Haven, ‘Confidence’ is also backed by a mesmerising film clip which helps add to the song’s powerful message.
Produced by Abele Productions and Dillon Pearce Media, the clip illustrates the song’s meaning with a visual story of two siblings who gradually drift apart due to ignorance and neglect on behalf of the brother, played by David De La Hoz.
If you’re keen to hear this future anthem belted out on the live stage, then be sure to catch Terra when they travel around the country this August, supporting Yours Truly on their Afterglow EP launch.
