“Armstrong’s voice soars confidently above lush, grooving production, making for a truly captivating first offering.” – NME
“…the trio bring together a lifetime of musical experience condensed into genre-combining brilliance, where their overlapping worlds come together to create striking moments of hazy alt-electronic-R&B-esque versatility.” – Pilerats
Following a breakout 2021, Melbourne three-piece Telenova step confidently into 2022 with the Blue Valentine Tour, bringing their enigmatic live show across the country in their largest venues yet. The tour caps off a milestone debut for the band, with the release of their acclaimed EP Tranquilizeand its ubiquitous single ‘Bones‘, which landed in triple j’s Hottest 100 this past weekend.
Tranquilize captivated audiences with its sweeping, cinematic aesthetic, garnering strong support from media, streaming platforms and radio across the globe. Their rendition of Madonna’s ‘Hung Up‘ for triple j’s Like A Version quickly became a fan favourite and Telenova found support for singles ‘Bones‘ & ‘Tranquilize‘ from BBC6, KCRW, Vogue Paris and NME,to name a few. The band then quickly sold out their November national tour, including six shows in their Melbourne hometown.
Ending the year with the release of the ‘Bones‘ music video, a nostalgia-soaked vignette shot between Melbourne and LA, Telenova went on to cement themselves as future festival favourites with acclaimed appearances at Wildlands, Beyond The City and Loch Hart Festivals. Their success is further bolstered by an appearance in triple j’s Hottest 100, with ‘Bones’ placing #91 in their countdown debut.
The Blue Valentine Tour kicks off March 4th at Wooly Mammoth in Brisbane, followed by Melbourne’s The Corner, Sydney’s Oxford Arts Factory, and Adelaide’s Jive.
