UV-TV formed in 2016 with songwriters Rose Vastola and Ian Bernacett. In their earliest days, the band started out making raw, speedy punk songs with the edges softened out by bright melodic sensibilities and faint hints of jangle hiding just beneath the surface. Over the next five years the band released two full length albums and a handful of stand-alone tracks, developing significantly from their earliest demos to the buzzsaw pop of their 2017 debut full length Glass, and achieving an even more evolved sound with 2019’s Happy.
With third album Always Something, UV-TV reach a new plateau, with some of the most
intentionally crafted and cleanly rendered songs they’ve delivered so far.
The first album to be completely written and recorded since the band’s relocation to New York, and the first since new drummer Ian Rose joined on, Always Something was written and recorded during the intense isolation of early 2020. Day jobs were paused indefinitely and the distractions of everyday life ground to a half, allowing for complete focus on the creative process. While demoing the new material, Vastola and Bernacett pushed their lyrical content to more thoughtful, deliberate places while loosening the grip on their arrangement choices, striking a new balance between control and spontaneity.
