Dublin-based postmodern, post-punk outfit TV People have released their darkly profound new single Die Down. Unveiling an audacious blend of post-punk and alternative rock in an introspective and gritty sonic landscape, TV People are once again set to make waves in the indie music scene.

Die Down, their first release since last year's Circle and You Were Loved, is an emotionally charged song that reflects on cyclical patterns of love, conflict and resolution in a relationship. Written from the perspective of a person who feels trapped in a negative cycle in their love life, it explores unresolved issues which repeatedly cause pain to both them and their partner, despite the immense love and support that flows between them.

The band's empathetic word painting packs an emotional punch as they take us through the highs and lows of an intense relationship.

As well as their strong melodic sense, we have mentioned previously TV People's exceptional use of tempo changes in their songwriting. It's in full effect here. The sprightly opening belies what's to come as the lyrical pain of

Broken, impatient

In isolation

Frustration, compelling the divide

'Til silent eyes collide

is reflected by the track slowing to a point where it feels it could actually stop before it reignites with

Tentative sparks

They ignite from

From your sensitive heart

The band's empathetic word painting packs an emotional punch as they take us through the highs and lows of an intense relationship. This is songwriting of the highest order.

The track was recorded at Darklands Audio Dublin by Dan Doherty (Fontaines D.C.), mixed by Grammy Award-winning Caesar Edmunds (QOTSA, St. Vincent, and Foals) at Battery London and mastered by Ivan Jackman at Hellfire Studios Dublin.
