“Telescreen is a rare and unique voice … this is a project I am honoured to have a hand in.”
— Dean Tuza, (Producer - The Rubens, Stella Donnelly, MOSSY, Moody Beach)
"You guys are the real deal. One whole package ready to bloom."
- Claire Mooney (Triple J unearthed)
In the little over 12 months since they formed, Melbourne indie-pop band Telescreen have been quick to make a name for themselves in the Melbourne music scene. The first half of 2018 saw the band sell out their first ever live show and work alongside renowned Australian producer Dean Tuza (Stella Donnelly, The Rubens, A. Swayze & The Ghosts) to deliver the first taste of their euphonious Telescreen sound - the release of their two track 7” vinyl which featured their popular debut single ‘Crowded’.
Likened to their sonic influencers The Strokes and Methyl Ethel, ‘Crowded’ was a favourite within the radio community earning them regular spins on radio stations around the country including Triple J and Triple J Unearthed, 4ZZZ, FBi Radio, Radio Adelaide and SYN. This saw Telescreen land top 10 spots on both the Triple J Unearthed and AMRAP charts where they sat amongst Australian greats such as Courtney Barnett and Dan Sultan.
Telescreen played a packed run of shows to close out the back half of the year, opening for the likes of Nat Vazer, IVY and Approachable Members Of Your Local Community.
2019 is shaping up to be a big year for Telescreen with the band to start the year off by supporting much-loved Perth band Mosquito Coast and Melbourne up-and-comers DIET. as well as the much anticipated release of their debut EP later in the year.
