TV Girl are bringing their hypnotic pop to Australia in July

They'll be gracing stages in Melbourne and Sydney, as well as playing a special co-headline show with much loved British five-piece The Last Dinner Party in Brisbane.

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.

TV Girl, composed of Brad Petering, Jason Wyman and Wyatt Harmon, was formed in 2010 by 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.

Keep up with the latest music news, features, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

TV Girl unveiled their first full-length album in 2014, the critically acclaimed French Exit. The album kept true to the TV Girl charm with a bevy of electronic samplings infused throughout light and airy guitars, whirring organs and ethereal vocals that tell the tale of moody characters fuelled by revenge as often as love, underpinned by a desperation and deep yearning to connect.

Their second album Who Really Cares followed in 2016, finding the band double down on their heavy use of samples. The record saw TV Girl combine the aesthetic of 90’s hip hop with modern psychedelic pop, offering a glimpse into the psyche of a love scorned twenty- something.

The band released their latest record Grapes Upon the Vine in 2023. Their most mature effort yet, the album features extensive use of gospel samples as it explores themes of commitment, God, and the afterlife; not, of course, without TV Girl’s cynicism and biting wit. The band performed the record live across America in 2023, including an acclaimed set at Coachella.

TV Girl will limber up for their anticipated Australian shows at Governors Ball and Bonnaroo, before bringing their lush vintage rhythms our way in July 2024.

Presale for all shows starts at 9am local Thursday 18 April with tickets available to the general public from 9am local Friday 19 April.
