BETTER THAN TV has no posts or upcoming gigs.

Better than TV had its formal debut in 2011. Our line up changed during the years as former students left Cambridge, and it is fluid and rather unconventional.
We published two albums, ‘Late’ in 2015 and ‘Song from No Man’s Land’ in 2018, both receiving positive reviews and radio time.
We (used to..) play regularly in Cambridge and London.
