TV Girl



On the surface, TV Girl is a sunny, throwback splash of ‘60s French pop and southern California soul. Yet, under that shiny veneer lays a dark heart, beating with sharp wit and cynical alienation, and the music is all the more alluring for it. TV Girl, composed of Brad Petering, Jason Wyman, and Wyatt Harmon, was formed in 2010 by Petering as an outlet to blend the love of Spector-esque girl-group pop with an emerging interest in hip-hop. 

 

In 2014, TV Girl unveiled their first full-length, the critically acclaimed French Exit. The album keeps true to the TV Girl charm with a bevy of electronic samplings infused throughout light and airy guitars, whirring organs, and ethereal vocals. However, this record is not all summer nostalgia, and there are plenty of times where French Exit reads like disaffected fiction. The moody characters in these songs are fueled by revenge as often as love, underpinned by desperation and a deep yearning to connect.

Now, some odd years after its release, French Exit has become a cult-favorite of love-scorned teens and adults alike. To celebrate the occasion, the band will perform French Exit in its entirety and with a full band for the very first time. 

TV Girl’s latest album, Death Of A Party Girl, sustains the dream pop, neo-psychedelic feel of previous work.  Petering delivers prosaic storytelling in third-person narration, recounting tales of wistful, romantic flings and mini-dramas starring various shades of the archetypal manic pixie dream girl.  The songs are echoing and surreal, cut with samples of dialogue from movies and radio shows that convey a grainy, vintage feel. Standouts include “King of Echo Park”, its beachy vibe conjuring images of skinny palm trees, graffitied skateparks, and humming lowriders; "7 Days Til Sunday”, a swaying, upbeat bop where the narrator reminisces of rooftop parties and one night stands in Manhattan; and the intoxicating "Every Stupid Actress".

JORDANA



It’s been quite the year for Jordana Nye. In March of 2020, Grand Jury reissued her sleeper debut Classical Notions of Happiness. Then the world abruptly fell apart. Using the time she would have spent touring in support of the album (seriously, there were 60 dates!), she quickly turned around a batch of new material that radically expanded on the homespun bedroom pop of her debut.  The result is Something To Say To You, a monumental leap for the 20-year-old songwriter. The album, a compilation of two EPs she released in the second half of 2020, landed her on Best New Artist lists at Stereogum, Paste, NME, Pigeons & Planes, and more. Seemingly never content to slow down, Jordana recently relocated from her Kansas bedroom to a New York City apartment where she's hard at work on her third full length since 2019.

 

 

Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, Jordana left home at an early age to pursue her dream of becoming an American singer/songwriter.  Settling in Dallas at the age of seventeen, she has performed throughout Texas before being featured in the national reality series The Next on the CW TV Network.

Jordana has collaborated with producers such as Grammy-nominated Carmen Rizzo and is in high-demand as a studio session singer, her voice often being heard in stings for radio shows across the USA. 

While writing and singing this new album I felt that I was coming into my true self,” states Jordana.  “I now feel lighter and full of freedom. I hope that anyone who hears it will feel the same and know that the only limits are the ones we put on ourselves.” '
