LAUNCH NEW VIDEO FOR ‘DARKEST OCEAN’
“In the same radio-friendly alternative-pop bracket as Haim, and rings with the same kind of ambition” – NME
“A pop cracker, all spiky guitars, shimmering synths and kiss-off lyrics.” – The Sunday Times Culture
“A thrilling, driving tune that recalls nothing less than early Bloc Party.” – XFM, Record of the Week
“All pounding, driving rhythms, flashes of synths and Editors-style post-punk guitars.” – Shortlist
After the positive reception that greeted their introductory singles ‘Thank You’ and ‘Too Young To Live’, Irish duo ALL TVVINS have spent recent weeks building towards the release of their current single ‘Darkest Ocean’ which has already passed 700,000 plays between Spotify, YouTube and SoundCloud. ALL TVVINS recently hit the road for a tour as guests to Metric, and ‘Darkest Ocean’ was featured on the huge-selling FIFA 16 game.
ALL TVVINS have now launched the official video for ‘Darkest Ocean’ which continues their creative relationship with director Brandan Canty (Hozier’s ‘Take Me To Church’). It depicts the band’s dynamic performance of the track with a series of stunning aerial shots as the camera sweeps the length of a dramatic stretch of coastline.
The launch of the video follows the news of a new tour that includes a London show at The Victoria, Dalston as well as a set at the Mutations Festival. The dates – scheduled below – added to the recent confirmation of their biggest Dublin show to date at the Academy:
20th – Dublin, Academy
21st – Nottingham, Bodega
23rd – Manchester, Ruby Lounge
25th – Glasgow, King Tuts
28th – Brighton, Mutations Festival
30th – London, The Victoria Dalston
Tickets for the Ireland and UK dates are on sale now.
ALL TVVINS consists of two multi-instrumentalists in the shape of Conor Adams (primarily vocals and bass) and Lar Kaye (guitars), who first met on the Dublin underground scene and started working together in the summer of 2013.
Their collision of disparate influences results in a sound akin to a melting point of TV On The Radio’s art-pop twists with the leftfield psychedelic excursions of Animal Collective. Even just a snapshot of their songbook demonstrates an admirable disregard for conventional genre boundaries.
Having previously supported Arcade Fire, Pixies and Jungle, and earned the respect of new wave pioneers Blondie following a set at Electric Picnic, ALL TVVINS’ summer festival touring has already included Pukkelpop, Dot To Dot and Field Day, as well as the VICE house party.
