NEWS: Lou Terry shares ‘Canyon’ video

Deptford based Lou Terry has just shared his stylish, hook laden, soul-deep new single ‘Canyon‘ via The state51 conspiracy. Finding beauty in the mundane, he once won the heart of John Cooper Clarke who stumbled upon him performing in a pub calling him “Sensational.” Clarke was so entranced that he missed his train home. Last year Terry played shows with Black Country, New Road and Piglet. This is his first new music of 2024.

Canyon toys with feelings of withdrawal and disassociation – with the accompanying video finding Terry hemmed in, trapped, yet resilient. Introspective, whip smart and soaring. It’s an earworm and a half.

On the new single he says:
It’s for anyone who’s holding themselves together or is falling apart right now – I think the world is quite difficult to wake up for at the moment, and (for me at least) this easily leads into an often immobilizing depression, I kind of just want to climb into a bunker and forget about it all, and it can lead to feelings of shame about feeling inactive or ineffectual at making a difference (like ‘throwing feathers into a Canyon’), but at the same time, you somehow need to wake up more than ever, and find the strength to put your voice and your body in the path of the destruction that’s relentlessly pedalled by our government, the police and institutions that maintain and allow this to be our status quo

The video is directed by Reality Breakdown and they they said,

The video plays with imagery of the song – feeling trapped into inaction by restrictions of your own making, we wanted it to be simple and bod, pretty much just stick to that one central image and let Lou’s performance do the rest.” You’ll be hearing more from Lou Terry very soon.
