Released last week, indie-pop-shoegaze band Nature TV’s new single Tell Me Something Good is one to watch our for. We chatted to the band about the new music and more.
Can you tell us a bit about yourself? Where are you from and how did you all meet?
We’re Nature TV, an indie-pop band from Brighton. Guy on vocals and guitar, Jimmy BV’s and guitar, Zal on drums and Josh on bass. Some of us met in music college, then Jimmy came in later on after our previous guitarist left to focus more on production.
Where did the name Nature TV come from?
From the guy who played guitar before Jimmy (Solo Major) in the band, he picked two words out of a book and there it was. It was a William Burroughs book so it could have come out a lot weirder.
If you had to sum up each band member with one word, what would you say?
Josh: Mysterious, Jimmy: Vivacious, Zal: Stoic, Guy: Sentimental.
You recently released your new single Tell Me Something Good. Can you tell us a bit about where this song came from?
The song comes from a place of irrational loyalty, to your friends, family or your lover. And even in times when they aren’t being too reciprocal or necessarily that appreciative, you’ve still got their back.
What inspired you to make this song, and what does it mean to the band?
It’s part of a larger EP and we took it in a different direction than most of our other songs, so we like the variety it brings, variety is the spice of life.
Is this a hint at more new music on the way?
It certainly is, we have 3 more tracks to come from this EP and hopefully something bigger coming next year.
Have you had the chance to play this live yet? Are there any (more) live shows planned?
We are too scared to play it live, but we’re building up to it. We may play it in Birmingham which is our last full band show of the year, but then also, we’re very scared.
What is next for Nature TV?
Becoming brave, and hopefully just playing a bunch more shows and releasing more music. We’re hoping to release our debut album next year…
Where can we find out more about you?
I would love to say wikipedia, but I don’t think that exists, our page, not wikipedia. Instagram is probably the best way to see what we’re up to. Oh and Turk’s tinder profile.
Anything else you would like to tell us?
Did you know that lobsters are biologically immortal. Happy Holidays!
You know what, I didn’t know that.
I’d like to thank the band for taking the time to answer my questions and wish them the best of luck with the new single.
