Bio

TV Dinners is a Suburban-sock-hop-garage-pop band from the great south-eastern suburb of Frankston, Victoria, Australia. Formed by Nathan Williams (guitar/vocals) in early 2016 as a solo project, TV Dinners was developed into a full scale band in June 2016 - with the addition of Jake Parker (bass/vocals) and Brodie Casey (drums).

Singing songs about the downs and ups of the suburbs, TV Dinners are only just starting to explore their sonic palette. “Hung Up” was the first appetizer from the band, which was soon added to a compilation cassette tape put out by the UK label POST/POP Records called “Adventures in Home Taping 4”. Their three track Demo soon followed, and was released in late 2016.

2017 saw TV Dinners cater the opening slots for bands such as Bleeding Knees Club (SYD), Jeff Rosenstock (USA), Slowly Slowly (MLB), Lime Cordiale (SYD), and The Hard Aches (ADL) - warming up venues from all over Victoria such as Northcote Social Club, Footscray's Wrangler Studios, Fitzroy's Workers Club and Frankston's notorious Pelly Bar.

"Wits' End" was their final project for 2017 - featuring a fully DIY approach - with all audio and video being created by the band and friends.

In June of 2018 TV Dinners enlisted the help of producer/engineer Samuel Maguire to record their latest single “Johnny B. Bad" at Frankston’s infamous Singing Bird Studios.

Nathan Williams (guitar/vocals) on Johnny B. Bad's subject matter:
"I started writing it about some of my hoodrat friends that were doing hoodrat shit - drinking too much, smoking too much, hooning around, and screwing up in general. And after the dust had cleared: they were never learning from their mistakes and doing it all over again."

Williams admits though: "As most of my songs go, even if I try to write the song about someone else, by the end of the songwriting process it becomes more of a reflection of myself rather than others. And that's not always easy to handle."

This was a hell of a lot of energy from A to Z and you had me hooked the entire way!
