Leeds Indie Art-Rock quintet ‘The Golden Age of TV’ release a stunning new single with candid lyrics and a smashing groove.
Following on from the success of their debut with ‘Between Each Brick’, a dreamy shoegaze anthem stacked with buzzing soundscapes, TGAOTV have experienced a serious updraft in momentum, not only earning festival slots at Live at Leeds, Meet the North in Newcastle and supporting the likes of Toothless, Krrum and Alex Cameron, but also reaching Huw Stephens’ BBC Introducing Show on Radio 1. Only months after their debut, they return to prove they’re more than your average indie band.
‘Dust‘ is a stark contrast from ‘Between Each Brick’, opting for belting vocals, sharp guitars and a killer 7/4 groove that dips and dives in dynamic over the course of just 2m48s, going straight for the Pop sweet-spot in length – there’s no room for self-indulgence in TGAOTV’s writing, but plenty of replay value.
Guitarist Ryan Bird reflects on the track, saying: ”For us, ‘Dust’ is about someone sabotaging the past. 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.”
