John Eatherly is the frontman/songwriter of the quartet Public Access TV, the band who came out NYC’s East Village with a barrage of UK press hype and two critically acclaimed albums.
With Eatherly going solo, we see a drastic departure from the confined rock world he was living in before. Eatherly, who got his professional start as a teenager performing Garage Punk in ‘Be Your Own Pet’ and Indie-Pop with ‘The Virgins’ (both of whom referenced rock n’ roll of a bygone era), might surprise listeners with the lack of nostalgic reference in his upcoming project. Eatherly’s world now is as if he has washed upon a shore in a post-apocalyptic future with nothing but broken ancient gadgets to make music with. From R&B, to nature ambience, to flutes that sound like their been played by a depressed Ai robot, it’s a whole new world for the musician.
Dragging rock and roll, kicking and screaming, into 2019 with a pop edge to match; Vinyl Staircase’s sunshine guitar riffs and driving drums crescendo into four-part harmonies and gang vocal sing alongs.
