Neu Pick: Tune into The Golden Age Of TV’s new single ‘Dust’

Tune into The Golden Age Of TV’s new single ‘Dust’

The Leeds band’s second single is today’s Neu Pick.

Leeds five-piece The Golden Age Of TV first emerged at the start of the year with striking debut single ‘Between Each Brick’. Today, we’ve got the first play of its follow-up, ‘Dust’.

The second cut goes straight for the sweet spot, taking the winding beginning of ‘Between Each Brick’ and piling on an irresistible, sugary chorus.

Only a band for less than a year so far, the track is another frighteningly competent showcase from the newcomers, and comes ahead of the band’s set on DIY’s Neu Stage at this year’s Live At Leeds. They open proceedings in the Games Room of the famous Brudenell Social Club on 29th April.

Speaking of the track, guitarist Ryan Bird says: “For us, ‘Dust’ is about a bitter ex who is sabotaging the good memories from the past relationship. It’s very sarcastic in tone, as it’s such an upbeat song, yet the lyrics are from the perspective of someone battling to hang on to the happier times. Each of us can relate to how frustrating that can feel, so the song means a lot to us.”
