Last May, I talked to UK singer-songwriter Terry Guy about his music, including his singles “Ticking” and “Brown Eyes”. Now, I am back with another interview: this time as a video! We talked about his singles “The Dirty Trash” and a little bit of “You’re A Liar”. Check out the interview down below as well as the two songs. Let me know what you think about the songs in the comments!
About the Song: “The Dirty Nasty Truth”
Alt-Rock, London-based singer and songwriter Terry Guy is about to drop yet another track from his forthcoming album debut album, and this time, not only does he decide to stick his middle finger up to racism, homophobes, body shamers, and online bullies, but he also confesses for the first time about his battle with drug addiction, on his new single, “The Dirty Nasty Truth,” available now on all online platforms, including Spotify.
When talking about the official lyric video for his new single, on a recent Instagram post, Terry Guy quoted “what with all the hate we see occurring in the world, I wanted to create a visual piece which represents beauty, no matter what colour, shape, gender, culture, or sexuality it is presented in.”
About the Song: “You’re A Liar”
Alt-Rock, London-based music artist Terry Guy dropped another new single, from his forthcoming album debut album, during the weekend and he has fully delved into throwback “90’s Grunge”.
About the Artist: Terry Guy
Having not released anything for 1 year, Alt-Rock, London-based singer and songwriter Terry Guy has dropped yet another song from his highly-anticipated, debut album, to YouTube today entitled “Ticking.” This follows on from the release of his official music video for the heartfelt piano ballad “This Is What It’s Like To Feel Lonely” and his haunting, 2018 single “Brown Eyes,”as well as a string of SoundCloud releases.
Following suit of Terry Guy’s usual, socially and politically-charged, lyrical content and although, symbolically, could easily resonate with listeners now during the current, ‘lockdown’ crisis, “Ticking,” as quoted by the singer himself “was written in 2017 when the Grenfell Tower fire and the London Bridge terrorist attack both occurred. During this time, I remember feeling as though the place where I was born and had grown up was falling apart, but not just for these reasons.
When I read that during this time, the victims of hate crime in London consisted mostly of Muslims and gay men, this statistical fact, along with the incidents I just mentioned altogether sent me into a period of depression, and ‘Ticking’ was one of many songs which were written as a result of this difficult era for me. It was a profoundly sad time and one which had never really officially left me.”
Born and brought up in southeast London’s Peckham, the singer and songwriter has been composing music since the age of 14 and is currently working with producers Franc Cinelli and Julian Chown, on material for his forthcoming debut album “Cloud Zero In Society,” which has drawn a diverse influence from renowned music acts such as Martin Grech, Emeli Sande, Sinead O’Connor, and PJ Harvey.
