Featured Band: Television Room

Unsigned Dubliners Television Room formed last year, and I suspect they'll be making a splash in the UK and hopefully here in North America in '08 with their glockenspiel-accented guitar pop. Their strength is writing straightforward, compact songs akin to bands like Peter Bjorn and John, with a touch of wit to keep the sweet from getting sour and enough instrumental variety to keep things from getting too run-of-the-mill. There is certainly room to grow with a little more improvisation and experimentation, but for such a young band, they have found a stride that should take them places.

Here are a few clips of the band, the first performing for BalconyTV, a gem of a show if you haven't heard, based out of a Dublin apartment not unlike Pitchfork.tv's Don't Look Down series.

2/5's of the band performing: "Baby's Got Some Good News on the Way"

Performing: "Modern Boys and Girls"
