"Terminal A was started in 2012 and consists of guitarist Lee Busch and vocalist Colin Peterson who play a gothic strain of synth punk, with deep stylistic roots in the Los Angeles underground... While technically a “dark punk” band, they cast a wider net to capture their musical and ideological influences than the majority of other darkwave and deathrock acts that have cropped up in recent years. Their creative process is a fluid amalgam of influences spanning from The Symbolists, The Viennese Actionists, what the band describes as “Romantic Essentialism”, and various proto- and post- punk artists from within and outside the main currents of their genres. It’s no small miracle that Terminal A manage to leverage this heady creative bedrock and still deliver emotionally penetrative jams that aim for the gut and the groin, that are still undeniably rock and roll in nature." - Arjun Rey, Sovo Mag
