Manchester psych/electronic musician Joe Oxley, aka TVAM, has released the video for his new single “High Art Lite“.
The song serves as the title track of his new album ‘High Art Lite‘, out this Friday, 28 October via Invada Records. Pre-order your copy here.
Featuring 11 brand new tracks, High Art Lite takes a different tilt to its predecessor by emphasising the immediate and the personal.
TVAM’s take on such things as role models, fictional movie character tropes, and fables of good and evil, are all tackled with the same suspicious cynicism but this time with an urgent belief in the human condition.
According to Oxley, High Art Lite centres upon the stories, characters and beliefs we absorb and how we latch onto these ideas to guide us through our lives. “It’s also about how easy it is to feel so far away from our heroes,” he says. “The weight of our own expectations. The sadness at the core that, as we age, our options narrow, the universe shrinks, and we find ourselves in the shallow end”.
