TERZO present their Drone/Shoegaze debut album through indie-label Icons Creating Evil Art

Karl Clinton (former bass player of cult post-punk act Diskoteket, co-founder of improvisational project Tsantsa) and Billie Lindahl (lead singer & guitarist of dream pop/dark folk act Promise and the Monster) are the creators behind darkwave/drone/shoegaze duo TERZO. Born from their mutual love for doom and gloom, gothic rock, folk and medieval music, TERZO is described as a statement and a craving to break free from the pressure and frame-work of today’s music industry and society. “TERZO was born out of a discussion about songs we mutually liked and a lust to try a different work process than in our then current projects” they tell us, “to do whatever we wanted without restrictions – with obsession and gut feeling as guidance.”

The two artist’s shared preference for music and art that embodies some degree of darkness, is tangible through the theme of ‘love & death’ that seeps through their upcoming self titled debut album – ‘TERZO’. The first recordings took place at the locally legendary adress Grantivägen 15B – a two room apartment and studio in Eriksberg, Uppsala. Here, the duo created what would become their upcoming debut single ‘Cymbeline’ and later their second single ‘Eve Seven’. There is undeniably an entrancing quality to TERZO’s droning soundscapes. A foray of broken and distorted electric guitars, embedded in thick layers of heavy synths and drums is laid out as the perfect foundation for Billie’s bewitching vocals that reverberates all through the cinematic productions.

There is something bordering on occult hiding within the grinding whir of sounds in TERZO’s music. In the midst of their creative spur the duo had sensed a third presence keeping them company, and was very intrigued by the thought. “We started talking about the appearance of a third element, in sleep and in dreams. Terzo is about acknowledging this third element, the swirl that light and darkness generates, opening ourselves toward our own weakness.”

Last summer TERZO journeyed to New York to play gigs at underground clubs, bringing with them the niche video photographer Johan Lundsten to capture their trip in an intimate video documentation that later would become the founding pillars of their two music videos for ‘Cymbeline’ and ‘Eve Seven’. “Johan brought his little dv-camera and filmed everything that we did hanging around.” says Billie. “It really is very raw and like just captures the things we did in those days.”

Debut album ‘TERZO’ will be released via the Stockholm based Boutique label Icons Creating Evil Art, streamable on all major platforms on April 21th, 2023.
