Terremoto formed in early 2017 began as Giacomo, Tessa and James messing around in a backyard shed in Melbourne. From humble beginnings Terremoto became an attempt to subvert the typical constraints of space and place to create music whilst band members were physically separated by multiple borders and oceans. Terremoto (earthquake in Italian) moulds upbeat new wave synth lines and 1980's pop vocal melodies with darker elements of driving goth-inspired guitars and drums.
The debut 12" EP 'The Bridge' was written and recorded in studios on opposite sides of the planet, brought together and mixed by Phill Calvert of The Birthday Party & Blue Ruin. Released on Calvert's label Behind The Beat Records in Australia and Symphony of Destruction Records in Europe Terremoto will be touring their new 12" EP in the U.S. in February 2019 and in Australia later in 2019.
On this second album, She Past Away deliver even more soon-to-be classic dark, gothic post-punk. The electronics are slightly more experimental, in a good way, but those tunes are so damn catchy! Definitely a band who really 'get it'. Carl Thomas
Its really common for me to write off most newer post punk & DR as the bombast triumph of style over substance. This record somehow manages to defy my expectations.. It's well conceived and executed, rigid and sparse while staying subtle and intense. There is some truly excellent! guitar work on this album. Catanist
