Softpush EP Out February 12th.
Canadian minimal post hardcore duo Terrorista recently announced the release of their debut EP, Softpush via Facebook. And then left us all in anticipation with no music and no release date. Just the artwork. Jerks. Luckily, today Overblown gets the honour to share the first cut from the album with you. It’s called ‘Sarah Michelle Gellar’ and follows the band’s trend of naming songs after actors (see last year’s ‘Phillip Seymour Hoffman’). It was written, directed, and produced by Rebecca Whitaker. She’s a hero. Assisting her were Dillon Taylor, Genevieve Latour and Emma Arkell. Legends one and all.
“SMG is about finding so much joy in someone else being who they are that you fall in love,” says band member Sam Burton/Hargrove. “It’s almost platonic. At the very least, there is a realization that it doesn’t matter if it’s reciprocated. The whole song builds towards one instance of this realization, but one that is hopefully powerful. The source of that warm, tingly feeling of maybe being able to love everyone because you love someone is right there in front of you, so get back to enjoying it.”
You can watch the video for ‘Sarah Michelle Gellar’ above or listen to it below! It chronicles an unlikely friendship between an apparently dead alien, and his captor who is attempting an amateur autopsy.
After the release of this EP, the duo will be focusing on writing and recording their debut album. I wouldn’t miss it if I were you.
