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. The band takes self-identity and ponders it
alongside themes of sexuality, isolation, and social status.
To date they’ve released three albums, including French Exit, Who Really Cares, and Death
of a Party Girl.
