“another frighteningly competent showcase from the newcomers” DIY
Leeds art-rock five piece The Golden Age of TV unveil their new single ‘Dust’, a spiky, off-kilter track reminiscing over a now dead relationship. Complete with angular guitars, lively drums and impassioned vocals from lead-singer Bea Fletcher, ‘Dust’ is an invigorating insight into TGAOTV’s sound.
As with previous release ‘Between Each Brick, which garnered BBC Radio 1 support from Huw Stephens as well as a marked local buzz, there is a continuing narrative undertone to their slick, guitar-driven music; telling unique stories forged by front woman Bea Fletcher.
Guitarist Ryan Bird elaborates, “Dust is about someone who is sabotaging the good memories from the past relationship. It’s very sarcastic in tone, as it’s such an upbeat song, yet the lyrics are from the perspective of someone battling to hang on to the happier times. Each of us can relate to how frustrating that can feel, so the song means a lot to us.”
In their short career the band have already taken in exciting support slots with the likes of Toothless (Ed Nash of Bombay Bicycle Club), Alex Cameron (frontman of Seekae) and Krrum, with a coveted slot at one of the UKs premiere new music festivals in Live at Leeds locked in for April 29th.
‘Dust’ was recorded at Greenmount studios with producers Lee Smith (The Cribs, Submotion Orchestra, Pulled Apart By Horses) and Jamie Lockhart (Post War Glamour Girls, The Tailors, iForwardRussia!).
