Blending post-punk and alt-rock, TV People’s new “Die Down” reflects on the cyclical patterns of love, conflict, and resolution in a relationship.
Dublin-based postmodern, post-punk outfit TV People have just released their atmospheric, emotionally-charged new single, “Die Down”. Written from the perspective of someone who feels that their love life is doomed in a negative cycle, it’s a gritty track with weighty vocals and a dark sonic landscape. The release was recorded by Dan Doherty at Darklands Audio Dublin, where Fontaines DC did all their early hits, and mixed by the Grammy-winning Caesar Edmunds.
The band have been recognised by a handful of industry heavyweights over their time, seeing endorsements from BBC Radio 6’s Steve Lamacq, appearing on Radio 1 and X, as well as a placement on Spotify’s ‘An Alternative Éire’ playlist.
As the brainchild of Paul Donohoe and Brendan Clarke, TV People fuse alternative rock and post-punk sounds to create their moody tracks. Since forming, they’ve honed their craft across iconic UK and Ireland venues from Whelan’s to The Windmill and continue to build on their growing momentum today. Having recently relocated to London, they’re jet-set to gig and release new music for the rest of 2023. For now, though, give TV People’s “Die Down” a listen.
