UV-TV are founding members Rose Vastola (guitars / vox), Ian Bernacett (guitars), plus latest recruit Ian Rose (drums). Releasing their debut demo in 2015, the band have released a series of releases including two albums, 2017’s debut full length Glass, and 2019’s follow-up Happy, with their sound evolving with each record they stamp their name to.
Supporting acts on the East Coast scene like Parquet Courts, Screaming Females, and B Boys, word about UV-TV is growing. The band blends pop music melodies with their own definitive punk spirit, UV-TV are now readying their most assertive and essential release yet with the new album Always Something.
Written and recorded during the intense isolation of early 2020, Always Something is the first album to be completely written and recorded since the band’s relocation to New York (from Florida) and with new drummer Ian Rose as a full-time member. An album that finds a band grappling with the overwhelming darkness of the time it was made in, while embracing the feeling of the world falling apart all around them, the resultant record is one that walks a fine line between beauty and chaos with remarkable results.
Signing a new deal with New York-based imprint PaperCup Music, UV-TV will release Always Something, on May 28th 2021. Available digitally, a run of 500 limited edition LPs will also be available in US and for import in the UK & EU.
