VIDEO PREMIERE: COLOR TV “KRISTINA” + “SHE’S UPTIGHT” (LIVE)
Here comes L.A.’s Color TV, absolutely nailing two Shoes-style power-pop songs, thanks in part to a rare and necessary kind of guts and bite that’s too often forgotten in the genre. It’s not power pop if it doesn’t have some power, right? (Plus “She’s Uptight” feels like one of those released-too-late Nerves songs.) These videos were shot/edited/everything by the production duo of Tony and Gabe, who tape sessions like this in their Highland Park basement when Tony isn’t making records with Crystales or the Squids. Right now they’ve got clips with Peach Kelli Pop, Shannon Lay and other recent L.A. RECORD featurees, and you can keep up with them here—and Color TV play the Modern Time Machines‘ record release show (our premiere here!) at the Satellite on Mon., Apr. 9, if you want to recreate an experience like this in real life!
