Kyp Malone of TV on the Radio has one fierce beard that could probably make 90% of other beards cry and run away to the darkness of an alley, feeling pitiful. I would, if I were a beard.
However, TVOTR music isn’t as intimidating. Sure, the music is strong, melodic, perfectly gritty with edge, but it is unassuming and not forceful in it’s presence in the indie music world. I do enjoy a damn fine band who organically happens, slowly creeps up into your itunes without too much wildness in the blog/mag/social media world.
TVOTR is that band.
This song is dirty. I like it.
The beard looks serious and heavy. Kyp wears it well. (photo attached)
