Piloting towers of electronics, erratic guitars and pounding percussion, HERRA TERRA forcefully throws you onto all fours. At first, this may seem a bit daunting, but you soon notice an oncoming warmth colonize inside your body, comforting you as you close your eyes. Being compared to Muse, M83, Depeche Mode, The Faint, a “modern” Duran Duran, and even NIN, sets high standards for this Boston based quartet, but they’ve proven clout with their earmarked brand of Synth-Rock showcased on 2013’s, self released EP, Hyperborean. The album unfolds a handful of sonic identities that swarm and sing, enrooting a wanderlust of astral euphony. Following their late 2010 debut, Quiet Geist *(The Mylene Sheath),* this year’s *Hyperborean *EP puts HERRA TERRA on the map, offering a new school approach to synth driven music, all while guarding nostalgic sensibilities that will keep fans listening for years to come.
