Brooklyn-based experimental disco-punk outfit TVOD (Television Overdose) kicks off a trifecta of new singles with the release of the first, “ .” A jangly, intergalactic ripper, “Alien” lurches forward with entrancing synths, distorted vocal stylings, and tight drum sequences. A la Post Animal, it’s a vaguely psychedelic trip into the vortex.
Said lead vocalist and songwriter
Tyler Wright of their newest release: “This was a song I came up with while sitting on the floor of my practice space feeling sorry for myself. I was having a lot of feelings of self doubt and jealousy at the time and for some reason I could not stop painting this mental image that there was a little envious martian man slowly eating my brain and trying to take over my life. It’s amazing what some painful emotions and a couple catchy guitar riffs can become.”
TVOD will release another two new singles before the end of the year. Stay tuned for more.
Drenched in beer, sweat, and emotion
TVOD’s unapologetically raw stage performances have become infamous around New York City since they formed in 2019. The band, founded by Tyler Wright, started to take shape while he wrote the first songs off of the EP (out November 2021) in his dimly lit DIY basement venue, The Palace. After recording most of the band’s first material, Tyler enlisted an all star cast of Bushwick’s punk rock royalty to fill out the live sound. Members include Victory Garden Mem Pahl (Jeffery Lewis), Lizzy Black (Fruit and Flowers), Jenna Mark (Tilden), Serge Zibrizer (Daddies), and Jason Wornoff (Vacant Company). Hailed as “loud and fun and good” by , the band is hell bent on bathing in the blood of punk rock infamy. Oh My Rockness
