These guys just straight up rock. No other way to put it. I sat here for a minute trying to write some filler to describe what Austin’s TV Torso sounds like, but I can’t. I’m sure someone out there can though. They just released a three-song EP that you can download for completely free on their Bandcamp at the moment, which I highly suggest you do.
They used to be part of Austin’s very well known Sound Team, thus they’ve been around for a bit.
“What’s emerged for TV Torso is a newfound sense of clarity in Oliver’s songwriting and aesthetic outlook, one that was never fully realized in Sound Team—a band whose dense sound seemed overstuffed at times. Instead, this Texas quartet has nailed down a distinct and unified sound—one that channels the infectious energy, warm gritty touch and weird Austin flavor that fellow hometown rockers Spoon have long possessed.” – Paste Magazine
You can download their new EP from the Bandcamp page, but if you don’t feel like doing that, you should at least listen to this song.
