Terror Jr released their first single “3 Strikes” in 2016 - debuting in the Kylie Jenner 2016 lip gloss campaign video which sent the internet in a frenzy trying to figure out if the vocals were performed by Kylie herself. Having amassed over 39 million Spotify streams and almost a million monthly listeners since, Terror Jr has finally debuted their first album, a stacked 15-track whirlwind, Unfortunately, Terror Jr.
Unfortunately, Terror Jr changes the pop landscape as we know it shamelessly confronting themes like women’s reproductive rights, LGTBQ+ rights, substance abuse, and a Trump call-out. In a political climate that feels fragile and sends even the strongest of us into occasional throes of despair Unfortunately, Terror Jr delivers their message in the prettiest of packages- with airy keys, singer Lisa Vitale’s ethereal vocals, and peppered with dance-tracks. You’ll be hooked after the first run through but Unfortunately, Terror Jr takes a few listens to fully digest, offering up a message you missed each time.
Unfortunately, Terror Jr follows the band’s critically-lauded Bop City trilogy - Bop City, Bop City 2: TerroRising, and Bop 3: The Girl Who Cried Purple - a moving look into youth culture - and a performance at Lollapalooza 2018.
