Hailing from Gerringong NSW, Jacob Finch (vocals), Lukas Anderson (lead guitar) and Ben Salvo (rhythm guitar) began teaching each other to jam in their shared trailer house, owned by landlord/ legend, Terry.... many noise complaints and two additional members later, Cameron Cooper (drums) and Trent Cooper (bass). Terry agreed to lend the fully formed band his name, and at last, the almighty Tezzas were born.
The Terrys released their debut single ‘Video Games’ in June 2020 and quickly began to build a cult following of Terrydactyls. Wasting no time releasing more music, ‘Penny’, ‘Wise Man’ and ‘Aqua Plane ft. Scraps’ followed within months. The Terrys continued to rise in 2020, announcing their first ‘Tezz Fest’ which sold out across Wollongong and Sydney within days and released ‘Pesos’, which landed in the top 20 Australian Songs of the year by the AU Review.
Cue 2021 a.k.a the year of The Terrys. Having not even celebrated their first birthday as a band, The Tezzas were dubbed “your new favourite surf-indie outfit” by triple j following the release of the heavily supported singles ‘Our Paradise’ and ‘Cost The Peace’. With the wind in their backs, The Terrys sold out all 12 dates of their debut East Coast tour. Much to the pleasure of the rapidly expanding Terrydactyls, the band have announced their debut EP in ‘The TerrySonic Mixtape’ accompanied by an 17 date national tour set for this October and November.
The Terrys love of homegrown music sees the band naturally draw inspiration from artists such as The Bungalows, Pond and Skegss with a hint of British influence from bands like Will And The People and Jamie T. With hooky guitars, fast and furious drums and charismatic vocals The Terrys will have you frothin' like a dropped tinnie.
