New Zealand husband/wife duo Terrible Sons (Lauren and Matthew Barus) share new song What a Friend from their upcoming EP Mass, out February 12, 2021 via Nettwerk. There’s so much depth in it. Poetic and realistic at the same time. Terrible Sons’s vocals soar over minimalistic instrumentation, creating a sound that’s moody.
What a Friend paints a deep welling sadness, but then, like a lot of what Terrible Sons do, it comes up for air transforming into something else — a signal to keep the faith, even in life’s darker moments. Matt says, “It’s about failing your friend when they need help,” but notes that, “with our music we always want to lean into something of hope.”
Check out What a Friend below. Definitely a must-hear for fans of Folk music. It’s entirely unique.
