Hailing from the sandy North Shore beaches of pizza and arcades, the sun drenched sound of The Televibes brings me back to when now defunct The Miggs still played house shows and I still lived in a house. At just over three minutes, their new single “Washed Up” is a whirlwind of funky surf riffs and dancing beats you just wanna shake yer yayas to. A real house rocker, the track starts off with a reverb-soaked riff you’ve heard in a dream somewhere then explodes into the first verse with verbed out vocals all supported by the tight rhythms these guys have mastered. On top of a lovable groove these guys are nice guys, just a buncha friends playing some good ol’ fashioned fun wrapped up in fuzzy blanket. But “Washed Up” is just the tip of the trippy iceberg, catch them Wednesday at the Middle East where they’ll be releasing their first cassette on 456 Records (Hadden of New Highway Hymnal) and spreading their fuzzy love all over.
