TRANSMISSION PARTY, from Millbrook, NY, is an independent, studio-based, pop music experiment. The PARTY plays music that blends British Psychedelic of the 60’s, early 70’s Glam Rock and Indie Rock of the mid ‘00s. TJ Byrnes (21) is the sole member of the group. He writes, sings/plays, produces and mixes everything himself.

“Transmission Party is both exotic for its time, as well as strangely familiar. It’s obscure, original, and weird, but it gives you something to whistle later on, and you don’t feel like you’re listening to something crazy.” – Shaketoshuffle

“Vocals are very strong… Great Harmonies… great melodies…” – Paul Conklin, The Most Amazing Radio Show Ever

“Transmission Party have an upbeat, britpop sound that will have you tapping your foot to the beat and humming the chorus to their fresh and catchy tunes.” – Heyday Magazine

“It’s perfect for anyone who still hopes for a Beach Boys reunion, or who plays Beatles and Kinks albums while their friends listen to the normal pop music…. All around, it’s refreshing to hear the new and exceptional talent heard on this EP.” – TruthorSarah.wordpress

The TP has been compared to Talking Heads, Nine Inch Nails, Of Montreal, Beck, Beatles, Oasis and Blur.

The first single ‘Right Left Good Bad’ has featured on Poughkeepsie, NY’s WRRV’s The Local Lockdown Show multiple times in Poughkeepsie, NY, AndHow Radio, The Crackle Radio Show and XRP Internet radio. It also has received heavy rotation on SUNY Delhi’s college radio station WDTU 107. 5 FM, Berklee School of Music’s the BIRN Internet radio, Staten Island’s WSIA 88.9 FM and Ithica’s VIC Radio. TJ has also been interviewed and featured on ‘The Most Amazing Radio Show Ever’ with Paul Conklin on KVCM mutiple times.
