Los Angeles-based TV Heads are set to release their maiden EP, Total Fucker, on June 24th via Oakland's OIM Records. Producer Jeff Saltzman (Department of Eagles, The Killers, Blondie), worked closely with the band to achieve a balance between the sadistic twisting of oscillator knobs, overdriven vintage amplifiers, and plastic bagged microphones.
The trio of Sean Galloway, Angelica Tavella, and Vincent Gutierrez came together in Los Angeles after more than a decade of musical collaborations in various bands, on tour, over the Internet, teaching at youth music schools, and performing in drag musicals. After soaking up the creative influences of the Bay Area for many years, and marinating in Los Angeles' vibrant scene of grungy post-punk and garage rock, ambient electronic experimentation, and cross-pollinating performance art mediums, TV Heads was ripe to begin recording Total Fucker.
The band finds it's sound in the collective experiences of the trio; arching guitar lines, gritty synths, and raw drums and bass. Galloway and Tavella mix their distinctive voices together to create lush vocal harmonies that launch into wild choruses, a'la a Jeff Buckley and Annie Clark fronted Smashing Pumpkins.
