TV Girl/Poppet/Fake Species

When: Fri., Jan. 27, 9 p.m. 2017

The use of extensive sampling and vocal effects in L.A.-based band TV Girl’s music conjures feelings of pop music from another time. However, lyrics about empty sex and modern relationships contrast with their indie pop and electronica approach. The band has described its music as something “you can sing along to, but wouldn't sing around your parents.” This is catchy, danceable pop music pushed up against sarcasm and self-deprecation. There’s something alluring about the juxtaposition, even if it does feel eerie at times. (Johnny Cook)
