Developing a new style isn’t as simple as changing the channel, but drummer Emma Berrigan and guitarist Ben Root clearly had something figured out when they repurposed their co-op’s DIY home theater, the TV Temple, into an ad-hoc rehearsal space. The Austin duo’s indie-adjacent sound has only prospered since 2018, evolving from an ambitious eight-track of demos into the polished product that Root and Berrigan (who share both vocal and songwriting duties) have deemed, “beach-alt”.
A heady balance between upbeat and breezy, TV Temple premiered their sandy psychedelia last Sunday with their first fully-fleshed out studio single, “I’m Not Like That”. The tide is high for beach-alt, and today’s newly-released video for “I’m Not Like That” is sure to make some big waves for your Wednesday.
