Album: Terra Incognita (2009)


  • After releasing two albums of high-energy, punky rock as Juliette And The Licks, movie star and musician Juliette Lewis formed a new band, the New Romantiques, and brought out a new album, Terra Incognita, which was produced by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of The Mars Volta. This anthem, which showcases the sense of belonging generated at Rock concerts, has become a highlight of Lewis's live show, in which the actress finds herself crowd surfing, born aloft on the hands of her audience. She told The Daily Telegraph October 21, 2009: "When I first came out in music, I knew I was good for a hundred tickets pretty much anywhere. But I didn't know if they'd keep coming back, so it was a really terrifying time. 'Suicide Dive Bombers' is really a love letter to all these audiences all over the world that show up. I'm sharing my own sense of alienation and putting my hands up in surrender and expressing that for everybody, and then you find this sense of togetherness."
