‘Beverly’ is the first single from Purple Skies, Toxic River, an album some six years in the making. After scrapping two completed versions of the record along the way, Canberra’s TV Colours has finally realised his long-held vision. Purple Skies, Toxic River is a densely layered debut: the product of teenage obsessions with heavy metal, punk and ’80s cinema threaded together with sound collages and sonic vignettes. In Beverly, the album’s pop centrepiece, chugging guitars, wavering synths and thundering drum machines bring home a soaring, anthemic chorus. At the start of the year, a full band featuring members of Assassins 88, Danger Beach and The Fighting League was assembled for live shows. The four piece have have already played alongside Deerhoof and Thee Oh Sees and will tour nationally later in the year.
