UV-TV used to make super catchy and super fast garage punk with some twee undertones, most notably on their 2017 debut Glass. It was an exhilerating record and the one-two punch of You’re High and Run, Run (Morning Sun) was one of my musical highlights of that year. I must admit, I played their second record Happy (2019) less often. That one was less fast and less punk and I didn’t connect to it, despite some excellent songs like Hide and Happy. The latest UV-TV record has just arrived and shows a band that continues on a path away of garagepunk and towards pop: Always Something is more Alvvays and The Primitives than Neighborhood Brats. It’s a good record though, and songs like Wildflower, Distant Lullaby, Back To Nowhere will improve most playlists you put them on. Can’t wait to see this band live someday. Always Something is out now on Papercup Music.
