“Chin up” showcases TV Heads’ love affair with sonic experimentation, featuring wild synthesizers, lush harmonies, and gritty guitar lines. 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.

Pre-order Total Fvcker at Bandcamp.
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, at youth music schools, and performing in drag musicals. After soaking up the creative influences of the Bay Area for so many years previous, 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 Fvcker.
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.
