TV Heads is a four-piece band born in the artistic crucible of the Bay Area and raised in Los Angeles on a steady diet of post-punk riffs, raw vocals, and electro textures. The band is composed of Sean Galloway (The Shimmies/Ave Grave) and Angelica Tavella (Nyx), who share duties on vocals, guitar, and synths, in addition to bassist Vince Gutierrez (Samvega/Crook) and drummer Jessica Lankford (Peba Luna). Galloway, Tavella, and Gutierrez are long time musical collaborators in various bands, tours, teaching at youth summer band camp and even performing in drag musicals. While Gutierrez and Tavella used to trade off on drum duty in the band's early days, Lankford officially joined the band after their last tour.

TV Heads’ debut EP, “Total Fucker” was produced by Jeff Saltzman (Department of Eagles, The Killers, Blondie) who worked closely with the band to achieve a balance between verses with delicate melodies and choruses that take the mix into the red. The result sounds like a mix somewhere between indie mainstays Deerhoof and heavier elements of Jeff Buckley's and/or Smashing Pumpkins' catalog. Gritty synths, overdriven amps, and lush vocal harmonies soar atop urgent rhythms, creating a sonic package that teems with life and breathes entirely unlike their plastic molded contemporaries, what Impose Magazine has adeptly called: “a big batch of encouragement that is entrenched in every aspect of emotion possible on the evocative spectrum of expressing all involved feelings.”
