Exclusive Premiere: Stream Color TV's Debut Single.

It's been a long, strange musical journey for Dallas' Noah Jackson since the dissolution of the short-lived Denton “electro-synth giants” of Ghosthustler several years ago.

Just as that band started receiving heaps of national attention — before ever releasing a full-length — it broke up.

But musicians keep on making music. It's what they do. And while Jackson's former bandmate Alan Palomo has since stuck to a pretty similar sonic path with his subsequent VEGA and Neon Indian projects, Jackson's ventured all over the place. After leaving behind the dance music world, he's dabbled in things like gospel, shoegaze and, more recently with his new Color TV project, some neo-psychedelia that recalls the work of Tame Impala's Kevin Parker.

This new project finds Jackson collaborating with Dallas producer/musician Jason Burt, who has backed the similarly-minded Natural Anthem, as well as Chucho, Jonas Martin and others of late. Rounding out the live lineup is Nik Lee (Wesley Gieger, The Texas Gentlemen) and bassist Christian Rios (Jonas Martin, Natural Anthem).

With a handful of Natural Anthem connections, it's only fair that Color TV's debut would draw at least a few comparisons and, it's true, both are drippy takes on '60s folk and psych rock. Only, Color TV's debut “Cadillac” single, which we're stoked to be premiering below, is a darker, more beefy take on the genre. It's about as self-assured a first offering you'll ever get from a new outfit — and it's pretty damn great. Take a listen.

This track, says Burt, will come as part of an official debut full-length that'll be released at some point in early 2016. In the meantime, Color TV is releasing an EP tonight at Three Links, where the band will perform along with the aforementioned Natural Anthem and also with Rise & Shine. Better yet, cover to that one includes a free, physical copy of the band's first-ever EP.

Can't ask for a better deal than that.
