On the surface, TV Girl is a sunny, throwback splash of ‘60s French pop and southern California soul. Yet, under that shiny veneer lays a dark heart, beating with sharp wit and cynical alienation, and the music is all the more alluring for it.

TV Girl was formed in 2010 by Brad Petering as an outlet to blend the love of Spector-esque girl-group pop with an emerging interest in hip-hop. Featuring shimmering vocals and sampled beats, the self-titled debut EP of the same year turned heads online immediately; the group’s lush vintage rhythms and timeless pop hooks were even making waves on the BBC. Soon after, Jason Wyman joined the band and Wyatt Harmon rounded out the live show. They continued to release increasingly popular EPs and mixtapes between tours. In 2014, TV Girl unveiled their first full-length, the critically acclaimed French Exit.

The album keeps true to the TV Girl charm with a bevy of electronic samplings infused throughout light and airy guitars, whirring organs, and ethereal vocals. However, this record is not all summer nostalgia, and there are plenty of times where French Exit reads like disaffected fiction. The moody characters in these songs are fueled by revenge as often as love, underpinned by desperation and a deep yearning to connect.

Their 2016 follow up, Who Really Cares, finds the band doubling down on their heavy use of samples. Combining the aesthetic of 90’s hip hop with modern psychedelic pop, Who Really Cares offers a glimpse into the psyche of a love scorned twenty-something.

AxixA
AxixA
An electric cellist, singer, and producer hailing from Baltimore, Maryland. AxixA's homegrown mix of sultry and rock vocals wrap around lyrics of mental illness, love, and identity encased in a sound that is not quite Rock, but not quite anything else either.

Initially Classically trained, AxixA left Classical performance (and music school) behind for a journey through Jazz, Rock, and Electronic music over the last five years. During that formative time, AxixA switched to using electric cello primarily and audio programming where she designs custom plug-ins for her Cello. This has led her to recording sessions and tours with artists such as Starset, Dennis Chambers, and Adam Blackstone.

Now AxixA is focusing on her own sound. Creating music that reflects her musical journey and history. A little classical, a little rock, a little jazz, all dope. Be on the lookout for new singles every month!
