From Brooklyn, New York, TV On The Radio are the multi-instrument indie rock band who formed back in 2001 and have been a critically acclaimed, international band ever since. Through their 6 studio albums, the most recent 3 of which have done very well in the US Album Chart, TV On The Radio have had near unanimous praise for their favour of a wide number of genres, having performed covers of tracks as far apart as Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ and The Pixies’ ‘Mr. Grieves’ that have gone on to become classics in their cover repertoire.
In November, TV On The Radio released their newest album on Harvest Records, which has been the bands first album since the demise of their loyal bassist Gerard Smith. Recorded in Los Angeles at the bands guitarists’ home studio, ‘Seeds’ shifted from the bands usual style in a tribute to their bass player that again received many positive reviews from fans and critics alike. The first single from the album ‘Happy Idiot’ was released back in September and emphasises a rolling hit hat with euphoric vocals and a melody that is too danceable. It’s an infectious electronic sound that has cemented TV On The Radio as one still to watch.
In celebration of their most recent album, TV On The Radio is embarking on a European tour in February at the beginning of next year. In December the band toured America calling at Miami, Seattle and Portland amongst a load of other cities, now it’s time for them to come closer to home, where they will begin touring in Switzerland before stopping in France, Belgium and Iceland, to then perform at a number of English venues including this date at The Institute in Birmingham.
