Terrible Sons are a husband and wife duo, former Dukes front man, Matthew Barus & Lauren Barus, known in other music circles as L A Mitchell and in Fly My Pretties. They’ve been nestled in Christchurch slowly becoming a streaming juggernaught with over 180K followers on Spotify alone. They will be bringing their intimate songs to life with a full band, at The Piano, in Christchurch. To celebrate the release of their 3rd EP, ‘Mass’
“......a stark, quiet collection of deeply romantic songs that hark back to the sweeping indie glory of Kings of Convenience and Feist. It’s the kind of music that feels destined to soundtrack the idiosyncratic indie cinema of the mid-2000s. It’s luscious, organic and so, so intimate”
“Terrible Sons are husband and wife duo Matt and Lauren Barus who craft songs like complex beautiful dioramas constructed from of the emotional stuff of life”
Their performance is one of conversation between piano and acoustic guitar and their melding voices also featuring Joe McCallum on drums (Tiny Ruins, Nadia Reid) Jo Barus on bass (Dave Dobbyn) and Cam Pearce on Trumpet. It is musically lush and intimate, like the songs, and gives the audience an evening of great company and music.
