Explode The TV are a four piece indie, rock band with infectious hooks and searing live performances. Their music balances thundering catchy bass riffs and addictive melodies with sparkling dreampop guitar sounds. 

 

The 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 Chris 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, having released singles in 2023 and an album set to be released in spring 2024.  Check out the new tracks including:

  • The moody but triumphant - Everything Points to You

  • 80's tinged - Plastic Tape

  • The infectiously danceable - Naked Eyes

  • Post punk track - Rescue Station

  • Found You In My Head Tonight

  • Their festive waltz - After The Stars Burn Out

ETTVs 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, Dublin Castle and The Amersham Arms. Previous venues include O2 Islington Academy (upstairs and downstairs), The Half Moon, Barfly and The Good Ship in London. They are currently gigging with several autumn dates across London.
