60 Seconds With... TV Snow
So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?
We're called TV Snow and I play guitar.
Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?
A mix of Bombay Bicycle Club, and Silversun Pickups, plus a sprinkle of awesome.
What do you love about making music?
Creating something from nothing, and hearing what everyone in the band does with it. Also playing in front of a big loud crowd is hard to beat.
What do you hate about the music industry?
The pop scene. A lot of the cliché musical ideas get recycled and re-marketed. It is what it is though.
If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?
Jimi Hendrix, to see if he likes my guitar riffs.
If you could assassinate one person or band from popular music, who would it and why?
No brainer. It has to be Creed, for helping pioneer the post-grunge sound, and their part in creating the monster that is Nickelback.
What can a punter expect from your live show?
A wall of sound with catchy vocals and harmonies, and an underlying groove that you can move to.
What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?
We have our debut EP with us which we've brought over , and you can buy them at our shows. We'll probably give some away if you come down!
When’s the gig and with who?
We're playing at Revolver upstairs on Saturday February 18 with three awesome bands Celladore, The Bellastrades and Hudson.
Anything else to add?
Well we're recording our second EP at the moment which (fingers crossed) will be out mid-year. We are also playing another show at Yah Yahs on the Sunday February 19, just in case you miss the Revolver show, or you want some more TV Snow action.
Oh yeah, Dear Melbourne! We don't know you yet but we'd love to meet you so come say hello at our shows! Please and thank you.
