Are you in need of a little pick me up this morning to make it trough the mid part of the week? Well you need look no further than this bad A new single called “Go Away” from Florida based rockers UV-TV. Clocking in at only 78 minutes long, you might need to play this rocker on repeat to truly appreciate the subtleties of the track. I’m finding several little new pieces to enjoy as hit play over and over…. and over and over.
UV-TV will release new EP Go Away on August 18th via Emotional Response.
I picked up on the edgy rock from UV-TV when they did a split 7″ on Emotional Response, and the band build on my early impression with the brand new track. It kind of reminds me of the recent work from Wax Idols, using those knifing guitar chords that walk the fine line of jangle. There’s an emphatic vocal performance, reminiscent of great 90s alternative rock tunes. Still, the best thing, in my opinion, is that the song’s not quite polished, making it a lot closer to my ears, in the personable sense. Look for the group’s Glass on March 10 via Deranged Records.
Not sure where my brain was, or where I was, but I somehow missed this killer UV TV tune the other day when it popped up. It’s the sort of noise infused poppy rocker that I adore, though I will admit it runs just a touch short. The drum work punishes and pushes your ears while the buzzing guitars begin to swell inside your mind. All of a sudden Rose Vastola enters the picture and you’re hooked into the song’s pop sensibility; you can’t ignore a combo like this. We heard the band long ago on a great Emotional Response 7″, so can’t wait to hear what their debut LP has to offer when it’s released by Deranged Records on March 10th.
Emotional Response is becoming one of my more reliable go-to labels. They’ve only been around for a short while, but already I’ve been turned onto new bands I wouldn’t have otherwise heard about. This time around, we’re all meeting UV-TV, some of us for the first time. Winning off the bat is the rhythm section, bouncing us into the distorted guitar before the vocals come in to sweep us pop fans away. I love this sort of stuff, as it’s walking the line between indiepop and punk rock, keeping an edge while remaining ultimately catchy. This track is off the band’s new split with Shark Toys, and it’s available now!
