Track Of The Day: TV Room – ‘Balcony’

You may know her as the drummer of deep tan or Buggs, but London-based multi-talented artist Lucy Rushton – aka TV Room – has now shared her shimmering debut solo single.

Showcasing Rushton’s rich cascading vocals, ‘Balcony‘ ripples with a smooth, soulful splendour and lilting energy, with shades of early Marika Hackman. Propelled by pattering beats and twinkling hooks, alongside an immersive, confessional lyrical storytelling, a sparkling winter ballad is created, oozing a captivating, effervescent allure. With its cinematic musicality and heartfelt raw emotion, it offers a perfectly comforting accompaniment to a cosy festive evening.

A self professed “soft-boy queer anthem”, ‘Balcony’ offers an honest reflection on the feelings that accompany a break-up. Of the track, Rushton explains:

“It’s important to think about whether it’s self-fulfilling to just say everything you’re feeling to someone who you’ve broken up with, or whether sometimes it’s best to understand that they might not need that just because you do, and let them move on. It doesn’t stop you from wanting to get it out somehow though, so I’d recommend writing a sad song about it instead.”
