Terror of the Deep - The A-Team

Regular readers of this blog will be shocked to know that we found another worthy guitar band.  Absolutely shocked!  Well, not really because we are always on the lookout for talent in the Southern Hemisphere, and we often find it.  This discovery is Wellington band Terror of the Deep, purveyors of brightly colored, hook-filled guitar pop as presented in their new album, The A-Team.  The arrangements are part garage, part dream pop with a few psychedelic bits as well.  There is just enough of the past NZ guitar pop heroes to remind you that there is a rich history behind these guys, but plenty of personality unique to this band.  The players are highly adept, and meld well together, and the songs are invariably interesting and melodic.  Try a few tracks below, and if you like them, buy them, because this album follows their second album by four years, so you can't expect to sleep on The A-Team and catch the next one soon.  Of course, you shouldn't want to sleep on this album, it is a cracker, and at $7, it is an bargain.

Terror of the Deep is Oliver Dixon (guitar/vocals/drums), Taip Adams (bass/vocals), William Daymond (drums/vocals/guitar), and Thomas Watson (keys/vocals).  The A Team is out now as a digital release. See the Bandcamp link below.  And we want to thank the wonderful PopLib blog from Dunedin, NZ (link) for alerting us to this band.
