Indie-rock newcomers TV People unveil their high-octane new single “Kitchen Sinking”. Formed in early 2019, the Dublin-based four-piece have concocted an indie-tinged sound that combines sleek dynamism with infectious punk-infused undercurrents.
Rooted in 00s garage rock, “Kitchen Sinking” is a fiery, rousing single discussing the tensions caused by conflicting societal views. Bursting into action with a ferocious guitar line, the single is laced with rumbling bass riffs and beefy drum thuds. Mixed by Dan Doherty of Darklands Audio (Fontaines D.C., Vulpynes) and mastered by Christian Wright at Abbey Road Studios (Radiohead, Blur, LCD Soundsystem), the single is peppered with sleek indie licks and unearths feelings of angst, catapulting the band as frontrunners in the Dublin rock scene.
Explaining the single further, the band says: “The song is about the extremist nature of disagreement in the world at the moment and the inability for people with different views to find common ground or mutual understanding.”
“Kitchen Sinking is a term used in an abusive relationship for when people continuously barrage their partner with negative comments one after the other to break them down psychologically. We felt that this was a fitting description of what’s going on in the world at the moment on a universal level.”
Previously opening for the likes of Twisted Wheel, the band are no strangers to the live circuit. Honing their craft through numerous live shows, “Kitchen Sinking” is only the beginning of what’s to come from TV People throughout 2020. Save a date in your diary to catch these boys live.
TV People are vocalist and lead guitarist Paul Donohoe, fellow vocalist and rhythm guitarist Len Rochford, Rob Kavanagh on bass and Brendan Clarke on drums.
