31 days in Wellington, day 21: 'Uranus' by Terror Of The Deep (c) 2015. A grunty and decidedly NZ indie number, with catchy hooks and lush musicianship.
Making music since 2008, Terror Of The Deep have been quietly releasing prog rock gem after gem, including the album 'Space Epic' in 2015 from which this song is taken. Oliver Dixon has written most of the songs off the album 'Space Epic', and, now several releases into their discography, the songwriting is mature: their sound is singularly theirs; Dixon's vocals roll around with relaxed confidence; and the band slips between tight structures, spacey instrumentals, and all-out jams with ease.
31 days in Wellington is proud to feature Terror Of The Deep as the 21st day in a series of 31 tracks by Wellington bands and musicians over March 2016.
100% of the proceeds from sales of this track go to Kaibosh (www.kaibosh.org.nz
