(Photo by Johan Lundsten) The new darkwave / shoegaze duo Terzo, which we covered already on Side-Line regarding their “Cymbeline” single, has just released its self-titled 6-track debut album. You can check out the full album below.
Behind Terzo we find Karl Clinton (former bassist in post-punk act Diskoteket, plus co-founder of improvisational project Tsantsa) and Billie Lindahl (lead singer and guitarist in dream pop/dark folk act Promise and the Monster). “Terzo was born out of a discussion about songs we mutually liked and a wish to try a different work process to our then current projects,” they state. “We wanted to do whatever we wanted without restrictions, using our obsession and gut feeling as guidance.”
Their debut album holds 6 tracks including the 10+ minute “Cymbeline” which is a cover of a 1991 song by the Celtic/world music singer-songwriter and composer Loreena McKennit. The song was recording during the band’s very first studio session. You can see the video for this track below. “Cymbeline” was released as their debut single in February 2023. The duo followed it up with the Cocteau Twin-ish “Eve Seven”.

Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
