Celebrating the forthcoming launch of their first full length album The Raft Is Not The Shore, Ōtautahi-based duo Terrible Sons have announced two release shows, taking place in Lyttelton and Selwyn District this May. Launching their debut long player via Vancouver imprint Nettwerk, the husband and wife folk team of Lauren Barus (L.A. Mitchell) and Matt Barus worked on the new record alongside fellow Cantabrians Jo Barus, Joe McCallum, Cam Pearce and Chris Wethey, with producer Tom Healy (Tiny Ruins, Marlon Williams, Jen Cloher).

In anticipation of their album's release on 28th April, the duo have unveiled new single 'Easy Love', a sparse and intimate song with an accompanying video directed by Kirk Pflaum, made with support from NZ on Air. The video follows a strong narrative which takes place amidst a wealth of breathtaking, scenic coastal views. Terrible Sons will bring their new material to the live scene in the form of a headline set at The Loons in Lyttelton on the 13th of May, plus an intriguing secret show in Selwyn District on the 5th of May. Tickets for the Lyttelton event available here...

"I think it's a song that contends with this bandied about idea that love is about getting your own way, getting 'my best life'. That's probably one of my most hated lines. I think we were looking at a relationship and thinking about how much communication and conversation there was to get somewhere, how hard that is, and yet how good that can be. It wasn't about getting your own way, but through conversation, and probably compromise, finding a new way together. And maybe it would end up feeling like your own way!”
— Matt Barus
