Terra Kin has shared their debut EP, ‘Too Far Gone’, with the new single, ‘Shadows’.
The 23-year-old Glaswegian only shared their debut single, ‘Flames’, last month and is now cementing themselves as an intriguing name to keep an eye on. Hannah Findlay has already supported shows with Kokoroko, Arlo Parks and Thundercat, and appeared on Fred again…’s 2021 record, ‘Actual Life 2’.
“I’m a very vivid dreamer,” Terra Kina shares. “I wrote ‘Shadows’ after having a certain person revisit me in my dreams, dreams that were inescapable. They led to false narratives, and in turn made me romanticise this person. I refer to them as a shadow to symbolise the fact they weren’t actually physically there.
“I always kept my songs in the confines of my bedroom, but after writing ‘Shadows’, my Grandmother (who lived with my family and raised us) became very unwell,” they continue. “We cared for her in my family home and I played the song to her. It was the last time she heard me sing. I realised it’s not about romanticising a silly boy, it’s about longing and trying to grasp something that isn’t quite within your reach. I love the immortality of dreams yet how fleeting they are.”
The ‘Too Far Gone’ EP explores the overwhelming power of love: “It’s about lifting your head above the water, being super honest and unafraid to communicate how you feel. Reflecting and shedding a new layer. I imagine each track as a different stage of emotion.”
