THOCTV Release Info:
Wreck is the new single by the Berlin-based international band The History Of Colour TV and the first song to be issued from their upcoming third album, for which the band traveled to France in the spring of 2016 to record with Peter Deimel (The Ex, The Wedding Present etc) at the legendary Black Box studios. Stylistically, Wreck is an accurate snapshot of the album the trio emerged with – a dynamic and open recording, live and with minimal overdubs. With its elongated structure and narrative theme, the song itself blends melodic sensibilities with noisy echoes of the early American underground.
The History Of Colour TV was founded in 2010 in Berlin by british artist Jaike Stambach. Over the course of the two albums and multiple EPs released, the band has been unabashedly diverse in their approach, exploring harsh noise, experimental sound collages, reverb-saturated dream-pop, shoegaze guitar-scapes, or the stripped-down rock of their more recent offerings. Their new album Something Like Eternity will be released in March 2017.
