Calm potential lingers in the air and a cool breeze licks your skin as the mellow sounds of TVDINNER massage your eardrums. At least, that’s what I imagined upon first listening to the music of solo project, TVDINNER. Amongst unique takes on Interpol and Connan Mockasin classics, TVDINNER’s Soundcloud reveals the off-kilter gems of Cordell Retchless, the 17 year old, shoegaze prince of Brisbane’s Northside. The crown jewel of TVDINNER’s catalogue is ‘Honey’, with over 30,000 Soundcloud plays. ‘Honey’ is mature and refined, whispering to a lonely soul that just can’t catch a break in love – and we’ve all been there. Despite an eight song catalogue, TVDINNER has yet to release an EP - but it’s early days for TVDINNER, and there’s a lot to come. In the next year, we can hope to see an EP release, live shows, a music video AND a merch drop. Like I said, a lot to come.
