Late TV, the London quartet, serves as the moonlighting house band for a surreal all-night dream club. Their debut album, "Vanity City," skillfully blends moody Art Rock, New Wave, Jazz, Funk, Yacht Rock, and Indie. It's set for release on Friday, September 8th, in a limited edition 180g splatter LP and available for download via the Late TV Bandcamp. So, settle into a luxurious black leather Le Corbusier chair, gaze at the twinkling high-rise lights, and immerse yourself in the world of "Vanity City."

'Vanity City' is like a distilled pastel undertone, undoubtedly one of the finest works of indie rock you'll ever experience!

Our journey through this sonic dreamscape commences with the exotic alternative vibes of ‘Fools Fools Fools.’ It's a song that delves deep into the madness of a love obsession through electrifying rock, marking an epic sonic masterpiece. Progressing further, we wade into the silky jazz undertones of ‘DWU.’ This track intricately intertwines with the narrative, spiralling us into scenes of surreal mystique.

A soothing climactic moment arrives with ‘Oh But Wait,’ blending jazz and rock seamlessly. It laments unrequited love, painting a vivid picture of the events that led to this ongoing emotional turmoil. ‘Body Parts,’ the next track, indeed marks the album's pinnacle. It explores enduring suspicions, and mysteries, and weaves a fantastic tale, adding a pragmatic shade to indie music.

‘Night Tennis’ plunges us into a sultry silk jazz resonance, blurring the lines between dreams and reality. As we continue through this indie jazz musical tapestry, we reach the most exotic number of them all, ‘Great Gulfs’! This majestic track, infused with intense electric guitar and bass, captivates with its deep mellow lyrics, leaving a lasting impression.

With tracks like ‘Ghostly Girl,’ ‘A Girl Like You,’ and ‘Topaz Galaxy,’ we encounter an infectious love story as the rhythms of these tracks surrender to the longing for the majestic muse.

Last but not least, we arrive at the enchanting beats of the final two tracks of the album, ‘I Like To Hear That Bird Sing’ and ‘Pour Me Out.’ What started well indeed ends well, offering a festive conclusion to this remarkable album.
