Explode The TV are an explosive post punk quartet with infectious hooks and searing live performances. Their music balances thundering bass riffs and addictive melodies with sparkling dreampop sounds. Their lead singer Bentley Browning founded the band in 2010 and was joined by Andi Skipsey on bass in 2011. Recent changes to the line up have seen Max joining in 2022 on guitar and Krizz on drums completing the line up in 2023.
They have 3 albums released -
Godbox, Rhymes for Robots and Normalized.
Explode The Tv are currently working on a new album, with 2023 seeing the release of three singles:
The moody but triumphant - Everything Points to You
80's tinged - Plastic Tape
The infectiously danceable - Naked Eyes.
Their next single, 'Rescue Station' is awaiting release.
Their influences include the classic post punk sounds of early U2, Echo and the Bunnymen, and the Cure as well as a love of britpop: Suede, the Verve, and Feeder. They have recently incorporated the dreamy and abrasive sounds of contemporary post punk revival bands including IDLES,Thus Love, High Vis, Murder Capital, and Dry Cleaning.
Explode The Tv have been wowing audiences at Finsbury Park, Farm Fest, The Camden Club, Good Mixer, Macbeth and The Amersham Arms. Previous venues include O2 Islington Academy (upstairs and downstairs), The Half Moon, Barfly, The Good Ship and Dublin Castle in London. They are currently gigging with several autumn dates across London.
