TELENOVA Announce debut EP Tranquilize EP Tour Dates Announced
Praise for Telenova

“Enchanting, alluring and instantly stylish stuff”  Declan Byrne, triple j

“really nice polished pop with an electronic edge and a nice quirky sensibility. Where it all comes together here for me is the singer Angeline Armstrong…there’s a sweeping cinematic feel” – DJ Raul Campos, KCRW

“A skilfully constructed cut of emotive pop… Brilliant as the lush instrumentation and clever production is, frontwoman Angeline Armstrong absolutely steals the show with a pitch-perfect vocal that just lands perfectly.” – Double J

“‘Bones’ has the grand, string-laden scale of Portishead-era trip-hop with a faster, dance music beat and unsettling lyrics – ‘I was dreaming of blue skies in California/While you were loading your gun’.” – NME

“‘Cinematic indie pop at its finest. It sounds at once nostalgic while thoroughly modern, and is sure to get stuck in your head from the very first listen.” – Purple Sneakers

“If this impassioned performance is any indication, Telenova have an uncanny ability to please any crowd and electrify any venue.” – Milk Bar Mag

Melbourne three-piece Telenova today announce their debut EP Tranquilize will be released Friday 2nd July via Pointer Recordings / Remote Control Records. Off the back of their sold-out ‘Bones’ single tour, and to celebrate the EP release Telenova will return to Sydney and Melbourne, as well as playing debut shows in Brisbane and Adelaide. Full tour dates below, tickets on sale this Friday.

The EP announcement follows on from the bands two singles ‘Tranquilize’ and ‘Bones’. Both singles have seen incredible support from Spotify (including New Music Friday AUNZ, Indie Arrivals, Broad Chords [cover], Fresh Finds AUNZ, Radar AUNZ, Just Chill, Local List, Office Stereo), Apple Music (Heaps Indie, Alt Pop, New In Indie, New Music Daily, Indie Anthems, indie & chill),  Amazon (Australia Now, Breakthrough Australia), and Soundcloud (Fresh Pressed Australia, Emerging Indie, Soundcloud Radio). ‘Bones’ has remained in the Top 50 most played tracks on triple j since release, and both singles have seen consistent support from community radio across the country with recurring appearances in the Top 10 AMRAP Metro Chart. Indie tastemaker Mood On The Roof has also showcased live performances of ‘Bones’ and ‘Tranquilize’ – watch via the images below to get a taste of what the band are capable of bringing to the live sphere.

Assembled by Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie) at an APRA SongHubs writing camp in early 2020, Telenova combines the alluring vocals of multi-disciplined creative Angeline Armstrong, alongside the refined musicality of Edward Quinn (Slum Sociable) and Joshua Moriarty (Miami Horror). With an air of quiet confidence, thanks to their self-directed cinematic aesthetics and trip-hop influenced production, Telenova trade in a sound that’s unequivocally Melbourne yet global in scope.
