Boomkat Product Review:
The first excerpt from TV On The Radio's forthcoming Dear Science, 'Golden Age' doesn't disappoint. The track initiates with an authoritative electro-funk rhythm section capped off by Kyp Malone's falsetto, only to be joined by a string ensemble and horn section for the choruses. As ever, the Dave Sitek production ensures the band sounds like no other, achieving an end result that lies somewhere between DFA-style dancefloor-conscious indie, and Bowie in Berlin mode. You'll have this on loop for the rest of the day - possibly for the foreseeable future even, and as a means of getting you excited about the album, 'Golden Age' sure does its job, giving you a glimpse of what could be one of 2008's smarter, more sophisticated rock albums. Very good indeed.
