Editors’ Notes

Dear Science finesses TVOTR's unusual ability to synthesize the very foundations of classic/prog rock with an atmosphere of futuristic surrealism – both musically and thematically. The first single, “Golden Age,” is subterfuge for a rare strain of optimism in the band’s work, a fantastically perky bass line laying the foundation for a dance track full of shiny horns, fluttering synths and strings, and a heavenly choir of voices. The beautiful “Lover’s Day” (with Eleanore Everdell’s vocals a perfect partner to Kyp Malone’s) is an unabashed celebration of carnal delights, with a phalanx of steady drums, soaring horns, and circling flute meeting up in a powerful coda, accompanied by angelic vocal backing. It’s darn sexy. Opener “Halfway Home” has the same majestic sheen and tension-filled buzz that made “Wolf Like Me” such a potent song, and “Dancing Choose” is an energetic, staccato-rap number moved along by a sly, funky rhythm that builds a head of steam with charging saxophones.  The slow-building, soulful “Shout Me Out” virtually explodes into a fantastic, guitar-heavy crescendo.

Customer Reviews

No Static Here!

TV on the Radio have created a mesmerizing sophomore album. While Return To Cookie Mountain was a fine release it did seem, on the whole, a bit disjointed at times musically. Dear Science cohesively flows along from one good song to the next. The group is destined for greatness.


Vraiment excellent. C'est rempli de clins d'oeil, c'est accessible, ça groove parfois. Je le conseille à tous!

Tout simplement prodigieux....

Un sans faute pour TV. Encore une fois un album halluciné, rempli de chaleur et de nouveauté. On sent une envie d'hommage, surtout à David Bowie et peut-être même un clin d'oeil à Gainsbourg. Pour une fois que des gars de brooklyn décident de laissé aller leur talent à autre chose que du gros rap. On en mange, enfin moi je me remplis la pense. Laissez vous tenter. Ça fond dans l'oreille.


Formed: 2001 in Brooklyn, NY

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

From their beginnings as Brooklyn-based experimenters to one of the most acclaimed bands of the 2000s and 2010s, TV on the Radio mixed post-punk, electronic, and other atmospheric elements in vibrantly creative ways, and are both visual artists as well as musicians. The group began when multi-instrumentalist/producer David Andrew Sitek moved into the building where vocalist Tunde Adebimpe had a loft; each of them had been recording music on his own, but realized their sounds worked well together....
