Tvam - Announces details of debut album, ‘Psychic Data',
From behind his Tvam moniker, producer Joe Oxley reappears with his debut album ‘Psychic Data’ which was released in October 2018.
Self-produced and home-recorded, the album was mixed by the steady hands of Dean Honer (Moonlandingz, I Monster, Add (N) To X) - “It was great working with Dean. I’m a massive Add N To (X) fan and knew he’d get where I was coming from after hearing what he was doing with Moonlandingz.”
Somewhere within a lifetime of repeats, reruns and reboots, Tvam lives, crafting sounds and visuals which touch on our memories but toy with our fears. A world in which broadcast becomes performance. Hypnotic tracks which straddle an impressive spectrum of influence; with Boards of Canada’s irresistible nostalgia, Suicide’s deconstructed rock’n’roll and MBV’s infinite noise all becoming touching points in Oxley’s musical output.
Shining a harsh light on our nostalgia, Tvam’s live show is something of a spectacle. Blurring the line between art and performance, Oxley is aided by long-dead technology and haunted sloganeering to broadcast his self-styled psychic data. Toying with the power of influence, Tvam offers no comfort in this age of unease.
