The five-piece opened with a rendition of “Creeper” which, as singer Jacob Finch explained, has an important meaning. “The day that we went to record this song, I got a call from my mum saying that my older brother Matt had had a near-death accident and had fallen from a balcony three stories,” he said. “Luckily today he’s alive and well, so we’d like to dedicate this song to my beautiful brother. We bloody love you mate.”
That was followed by brand-new single “Rolling Stone”, which they’ve said is the “most sentimental” song they’ve ever written. Unsurprisingly, the track had an obvious inspiration. “It’s named after the magazine itself,” Finch revealed. “I guess you could say we got somewhat inspired. It’s about life, it’s about love, it’s about the streets of Australia, and it’s about The Terrys.”
The Terrys then closed their ‘In My Room’ performance with one of their old classics, “Pesos”. “We’ve been The Terrys and this has been a bloody bonanza,” Finch said before bursting into the track. “We’ve been having a great time in our bedroom, hope you guys enjoyed it all with us.”
