New TV on the Radio: Will Do
New stuff from TV on the Radio tonight, accompanied by the announcement that their new album Nine Times of Light is out on April 12th.
The new track aired on US radio and is called ‘Will Do’. It has a very refined sound to it, particularly in the drum beat. It carries on from where Dear Science left off, with a sound that seems to move further and further away from the Return to Cookie Mountain’s style and more towards that of Dave Sitek’s Maximum Balloon.
It’s sounding more and more processed. They used to be masterful at creating wall-of-sound, guitar-thrashing, breath-taking songs. This is a very interesting song, it is difficult to work out what direction they are heading in.
