The new trio featuring Phil Manley of Trans Am / Life Coach channel their cosmic energy and considerable chops into a sinuous space-rock jam on the first single from their debut album, Soft Opening.
Listen to "Specificity (Or What Have You)" now
A kind of in-house band at El Studios, run by Manley along with studio co-owners Donny Newenhouse and Phil Becker, Terry Gross began as an opportunity for the trio to test the boundaries and gear of the studio. With the tapes rolling on rehearsals, Soft Opening captures the sheer exuberance of playing together, “Specificity…” in particular managing to distil the improvised sessions into a tight pop-structure without losing any of the expansive energy of the trio’s live performance.
Terry Gross debut album Soft Opening is available to pre-order now on limited-edition pink vinyl.
