Norway's Great News and the runaway indie rock glitter ball presence of "TV"

Norway based Great News coming off their impressive debut album "Wonderfault" (2018) release the single TV via Bergen based Label Eget Selskap. Since their debut they have been touring Austria, Germany, Holland and the UK and are currently working on their second album.

TV is a cool sprint of a song that feels like indie rock filtered through art rock / proto punk filters. The tones are now but there is something in the syncopated synth and feverish pace that feel mid 80's too in a good new wave way. It conjures up runaway nights and glitter ball sprays of light on beautiful faces. I love the vocal performance. It has been stuck in my brain for days.
