TV Girl’s Benny and the Jets is a wonderful affair that features soft ’60s pop with a palm full of soul colors that not only lo-fi fans love but also our grandmothers. Since listening to that EP, I had always wanted to write about the band but did not have the chance to do so. Only this time when I saw TV Girl do a new song from their formal debut next year that inspiration sparked once more.
For Knocksteady, the band performed “I Wonder Who She’s Kissing Now,” a seemingly wordplay of a Ray Charles classic “I Wonder Who’s Kissing Her Now” if you would consider TV Girl’s love of sampling soul jams. As always, TV Girl delivers a party of a track backed up luscious bass teasing Trung Ngo’s vocals. “So take me up the mountain/ bring me to the temple/ stole my guts into the sacrificial vessel,” the band charms, promising their debut out on February 16th as exciting as their past EPs.
