Tuck Into The Bullshit Good New Song From TV Dinners
Frankston’s own TV Dinners have steadily carved themselves a name in the scene since early 2016. Latest single Wits’ End sees the band drop the pageantry of progression that most tend to follow as they age, instead going fully DIY. The result is their best song to date: Wits’ End.
2017 saw the once solo project, now full blown three piece grunge pop darling band go silent on the release front. Instead focusing on their live show and nabbing support slots for the likes of Jeff Rosenstock, The Hard Aches, Bleeding Knees Club and Slowly Slowly along the way. Right up until the dying days of the year, Wits’ End came to fruition off nothing but the band’s own backs. All audio and visual on the track has been produced by the band themselves or by close friends of the band.
Endearingly lofi, honest and impossibly infectious when the chorus hits, Wits’ End bounces through the timeless, paradoxical theme of having too much on, but nothing to show for it. Frontman Nathan Williams feels suitably tired in verses before launching into each chorus with an energy that grabs you for the ride every time.
Musically Wits’ End is a brilliant example of song construction. Laden with hooks, at times innocently unguarded and minimal yet at others bold, brash and in your face. This is the intelligent and deceptively simple sound you would expect to hear come out of a garage by the beach in Melbourne.
Brilliant with a hint of bellicose, this is a bullshit good song. Wits’ End is an impressive exercise in song construction that signals a big 2018 lying ahead for the band.
