Dublin indie/post punk/alt duo TV People, made up of Brendan Clarke and Paul Donohoe, have revealed their darkly profound new single “Die Down” and its accompanying video.
The song, recorded at Darklands Audio Dublin by Dan Doherty (Fontaines D.C.), and mixed by Grammy Award-winning Caesar Edmunds (QOTSA, St. Vincent, and Foals) is out now via Blowtorch Records.
Unveiling an audacious blend of post-punk and alternative rock in an introspective and gritty sonic landscape, TV People are once again set to make waves in the indie music scene.
Die Down, their first release since last year’s Circle and You Were Loved, is an emotionally charged song that reflects on cyclical patterns of love, conflict and resolution in a relationship. Written from the perspective of a person who feels trapped in a negative cycle in their love life, it explores unresolved issues which repeatedly cause pain to both them and their partner, despite the immense love and support that flows between them.
The band’s empathetic word painting packs an emotional punch as they take us through the highs and lows of an intense relationship.
Grab it here and watch the Robert Clarke-directed video below.
TV People is the project of Paul Donohoe (vocals, guitar) and Brendan Clarke (drums); a band who create their dark, atmospheric yet melodic sound from a fusion of alternative rock and post-punk inﬂuences. Since forming in 2019, they have honed their craft in venues throughout Ireland and the UK.
