Video Premiere: Eraser TV – NYP
One of the finest to sprout from Limerick’s DIY scene, Eraser TV have some lo-fi scuzz for you this lazy Sunday, in the form of ‘NYP’. It’s the first single from the as-yet-untitled follow-up to their 2017 debut EP Buzzfeed Depression Quiz.
Sonically, it’s a direct descendent of idiosyncratic 90s guitar rock a la Dinosaur Jr melded with the anxious excitement of the Dismemberment Plan; add that to its modern indie-punk & emo tint and you’re left with a sound that could’ve fallen off the shelves of the Exploding In Sound catalogue. Where the wartime paranoia video for experimental previous epic ‘Golden Boy‘ was steeped in deeply affecting, this kitschy Eurodance throwback visual accompaniment – look at the young, Germanic Doug Stanhope up there – takes a lighter spin on their wholly necessary, disaffected ‘look towards yesterday to distract me from today’ ethos.
Eraser TV are set to play the following forthcoming dates:
Tonight, February 12 – School of Art & Design, Limerick
Thursday, February 15 – D.I.E. Rag Week Party, Dolans, Limerick
Saturday, March 10 – Sin É, Dublin w/Slouch & Junk Drawer
