Fresh from the release of their knockout single ‘IDK’ earlier this month, rapidly-rising indie-surf act The Terrys have revealed its new music video, filmed in partnership with NIDA.

Packing many-a memorable, punchy and sing-along moments into just 3 minutes, the ‘IDK’ single – as well as today’s new clip – is classic Terrys fun with a hint of attitude. On the song, the band shares:

“’IDK’ pretty much speaks for itself. It’s about those triggers inside you that people can sometime set off and feels like a bit of a punch in the face. It’s a fun take on that, plus we wanted to release a fast song people can dance to at our shows after being cooped up for the last couple years,” adding of the video:

“Working with Alexei, Soham and all the other amazing NIDA students was so surreal for us. When we rocked up on set I think we were all a little shell shocked, we’d never been in such a professional environment haha.”

Director Alexei Ymer-Welsby also shares: “Listing to ‘IDK’ for the first time, it was impossible to not hear The Terrys’ free-wheeling rebelliousness, their playful spirit and their warm embrace of life’s simple pleasures. This was our inspiration for the concept that is the ‘IDK’ video.”

Barely two months into 2022 and The Terrys have a lot to celebrate – their national headline tour is in full swing and continuing to sell out dates and their acclaimed 2021 single ‘Our Paradise’ recently came in at #76 in triple j’s Hottest 100. Meanwhile, the band’s recent ‘IDK’ release has also found a home across the triple j waves, streaming services (including playlist additions to the tune of New Music Friday AU/NZAll New RockThe New RockNew Music Daily and the cover of Local Noise) and music media such as NME AustraliaAU Review (Track of the Week), MILKYHysteria and more.

With more music in the pipeline and their brood of Terrydactyls continuing to balloon by the minute, The Terrys are fast headed towards becoming one of the biggest names in the country before too long.
