Some BodiesBristol’s Some Bodies have made a great new surrealist video for their single ‘TV Show’ which LTW can exclusively reveal today.

“TV Show is a pretty obvious song thematically. It’s a lot less cryptic than most tunes we do; with fairly brazen lyrics. It’s observing the weaponisation of trivial gestures in the pursuit of some strange fame. Features of being a normal nice person are now worn like badges of honour and buying a coffee is worthy of screaming from the digital rooftops. At the time we wrote it the world really felt like a big casting call with the allure of shiny stardom causing us all to scratch at the stars. I guess we just turned that into a video. There’s no rhyme or reason as to why the characters in the video are doing what they’re doing because it doesn’t seem like there’s a good reason for us all to be doing it in the “real” world.”

Starting to make some waves locally in Bristol, the band (Tom Nosek, Fred Hickey, Rhys Friery, Alfie Tyson Brown, Issac Jones) have recently shared stages with the likes of FUR, Champagne Superchillin and Sugar Candy Mountain, played Liverpool Sound City and their first London shows include those for Huw Stephens and George Godfrey.

Raised by music obsessive parents on a diet of Ska, Bowie, Queen… and the Bay City Rollers. Discovered dance music and heavy metal at the same time making for a strange brew of taste. I do this for the love of an art form which welcomes all types and speaks to us all. Find me on twitter @simontucker1979.
