Released: March 2004

Pairing the cool vocals of Tunde Adebimpe and the funk sensibilities of Kyp Malone with suave electronic beats and post-rock guitar onslaughts, TV On The Radio have made their name by sounding out against indie rock mediocrity. No song encapsulated such a stance more than the sky-soaring majesty of ‘Staring At The Sun’, from their 2004 album 'Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes'. And for all David Sitek's masterful work on the production desk for the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Foals and Hollywood A-lister Scarlett Johansson, it's with TV On The Radio that he has really left an indelible mark.
