Dublin-based four-piece TV People have just dropped new track, Nothing More. Mixed and recorded at Darklands Audio with Dan Doherty (Fontaines D.C., Vulpynes) and mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Christian Wright (Radiohead, Blur, LCD Soundsystem), Nothing More sees the band come to terms with identity and the struggle of finding a purpose in life. Bass player Rob Kavanagh spoke with The Fountain about the track in more depth as well as their future plans for the 2020.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Nothing More?
The reception has been really overwhelming at times. It’s very rewarding to see all the positive feedback on the track as we put a lot of effort into writing it during the lockdown. A big highlight recently was having Steve Lamacq recommend the track on his show on BBC 6 Music. That was a very surreal moment.
TF: How would you sum up the track in one sentence?
I would say: “the track documents the inner turmoil experienced when coming to terms with your own identity”.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release?
We are preparing for the release of our next single String in mid-November. We recorded this track during the same studio session as Nothing More. The song shares the same sense of atmosphere with Nothing More. It is quite energetic however and has a bit more of a traditional structure. We are really looking forward to sharing this one.
We also recently had our first livestream gig over on the blog Indie Buddie. That was very fun to set up and play. We are planning to do more of these soon so people also have that to look forward to.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
We have played a ton of gigs in Whelan’s in Dublin since forming last year so I’d have to say there. They are brilliant supporters of the independent music scene in Dublin and I can’t wait to get back to playing in the venue.
