BETTER THAN TV is a band based in Cambridge. We play regularly at the main University and live music events in Cambridge, and we are ready to perform further afield.
Better than TV released its first album ‘Late’ in 2015 receiving favourable reviews and radio time. Our second album ‘Song from No Man’s Land’ is out now!
Better than TV has a fresh and inventive sound, unconcerned with genres, with its original compositions and the band’s fluid and rather unconventional line-up.
