Manchester psych/alt/synthwave musician Joe Oxley, aka TVAM, has revealed his new single “Costasol“, featuring vocals from Mona (of Robbie & Mona).
The song serves as the title track of his upcoming EP, set to arrive on November 3 via Invada Records. Get it here and take a listen below.
TVAM self-released his much-acclaimed debut Psychic Data in the autumn of 2018, something of a cult-classic, the album joined the dots between Suicide’s deconstructed rock ’n’ roll, Boards of Canada’s irresistible nostalgia and My Bloody Valentine’s infinite noise.
His latest album ‘High Art Lite‘, released in October last year, took 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.
