Artist of the Day: Tera Melos

Tera Melos has progressed immensely in the last eight years. Hark back to 2005, where one can find a wildly confident math-rock-esque group toying with instrumentation like a kid on a playground. Tera Melos' self-titled album was all over the place, in terms of both cohesiveness and scope. After all, the album ended with a 20+ minute experiment into how expressive full-fledged noise can be.

Fast-forward to 2013, only to find a different beast. Today's Tera Melos is much more vivid and personable, and way more reasonable with its experimentation than "Melody 8" would have the band's fans believe. The band has blossomed into distinctly poppy territory, too: 2011 saw 2 stellar EP releases from the group, which were simultaneously adventurous and sensibly grounded. Check out "Purple and Stripes," and tell me this isn't the catchiest tune yet from Tera Melos.

On April 16, the band's newest full-length X'ed Out will be released. We at MuzikDizcovery will be covering the album soon, as well as publishing an interview with Tera Melos' very own bassist Nathan Latona! The interview went incredibly well, and I'm thrilled to post it. So stay tuned, and join in on the hype surrounding X'ed Out. And honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if April 16 sees Tera Melos release its most endearing album to date.
