TV Room Release New Single “Stacey”- Out Now on Sad Club Records

February 9, 2023




London-based singer/songwriter TV Room releases her third single via Sad Club Records, the multi-layered ‘Stacey’.

The stage name of Lucy Rushton (drummer with Deep Tan), TV Room is her solo venture into a confessional musical world. ‘Stacey’ is a deceptively jaunty track that belies its lyrical tale of frustration with someone who paints the world as a movie of which they are the star.

It’s about being around people who have main character syndrome and romanticise all the damage they are causing around them instead of taking responsibility for it” Lucy explains. “it’s about giving up hope on trying to understand someone and keep up a connection with a person who is trying to hurt and compete with you instead of appreciating the relationship you have and in turn destroying it.”  

The new track flourishes from the get-go with the distinct tonality that shines throughout the release, TV Room is renowned for lacing their work with nothing but heart-felt attachment and the new track once again details such intimate lyrics which draw emotion to the harmonies. Lucy continues to enthrall with the power of her striking song-writing which boldly produces a clear vision bouncing from the words. The atmosphere meanders through this elastic state, with the instrumentation delving into punchy shuffles and the swirling guitar rhythms cascading through the contrasting brighter elements, lifting high above the more personal words. Ending the journey on the spacious reverb leaving its crushing mark on the final bar.

‘Stacey’ follows TV Room’s previous singles ‘Pretend’ and ‘Balcony’, which found fans in BBC Radio 1 & 6, Soho Radio, as well as Get In Her Ears, Various Small Flames and Clash.

TV Room echoes the ethereal lyricism of Alice Phoebe Lou, as well as the understated instrumentation of Soccer Mommy, creating an instantly endearing lo-fi track. She also takes cues from the deadpan humour and punkish attitude of Courtney Barnett, one of her all-time heroes.

Growing up in a small town near Manchester, Lucy used music as her route out of the town. Buying a £20 guitar from cash converters when she was 15, Lucy developed her amp-less sound on the landing of her parents’ home. Studying Popular Music at Goldsmiths University, she developed her sound amongst a scene of like-minded musicians. Lucy has played in a multitude of bands, not least Deep Tan and Buggs, touring with the likes of Yard Act, Nation of Language, Bodega and The Big Moon.
