Throughout 2024, Telenova have been confidently unveiling glimpses into their debut album, ‘Time Is A Flower’ (August 16th) with singles “Teardrop” and “Power” – deftly combining the bands sample-driven trip-hop and disco influences with their unique brand of cinematic alt-pop.

“Discothèque Inside My Head”—the new single and video out today – imaginatively rewrites the script sonically and visually ahead of the album’s release, international tour, and support of Norwegian singer-songwriter Girl In Red throughout July.

Jangly electric guitars evolve into a kaleidoscope of psychedelic tinged alt-pop on Discothèque Inside My Head, setting the stage for some of Telenova’s most vivid songwriting and vocal performances yet. Frontperson Angeline Armstrong explains, “Sometimes all the noise and voices of my inner critic make me feel like I’m spinning around, lost in an overwhelming disco of light and sound inside my head. I’m discovering the key to living with that level of self-doubt and noise is learning to dance along with the discothèque”.

Premiering at the St Kilda Film Festival in June, “Discothèque Inside My Head” is also Telenova’s most ambitious music video yet. Written and directed by Angeline Armstrong and co-directed by Hamish MacGregor, the clip features a series of refreshingly quirky dance sequences by award-winning choreographer Zoee Marsh. “It’s essentially a 6-minute mini-musical”, Angeline says, “starting with an off-beat audition sequence where I’m literally being judged by myself (the inner critic made all too real), the competing dancers in the video represent the voices of comparison and self-doubt in my head…but me and the voices ultimately learn to dance happily ever after.”

Reflective of Telenova’s rapidly growing fandom locally and internationally, Telenova will play their biggest headline tour yet on their ‘Time Is A Flower’ tour with 40 shows spanning cities across Europe, the UK, Australia and New Zealand including Paris, London, Berlin and Oslo and their biggest headline show anywhere in the world, in Athens this October.

A tapestry of dark romanticism, slick musicianship and vivid aesthetics have fuelled the Melbourne outfit since their debut EP Tranquilize in 2021. Powered by the ubiquitous lead single Bones, plus the sweeping sonics of follow up EP Stained Glass Love, Telenova have been passionately embraced at home and abroad, thanks to support from BBC6, KCRW, Vogue Paris, NME, Clash Mag, Radio X and more.

Accolades in their home country of course followed, including the 2022 AIR Breakthrough Artist award, appearing on Triple J’s Hottest 100, embarking on multiple sold-out tours and appearing on major festival lineups across Australia, building a dedicated audience and widespread praise. In 2023, Telenova played to over 15,000 people across Europe, headlining shows and supporting RUEL, in anticipation of their European festival debut in 2024.

The distinctive universe of Telenova – shadowy, sample driven alt-pop with prominent trip-hop and electronica influence, plus a touch of playful energy – is the design of lead vocalist, songwriter and filmmaker Filipina-Australian Angeline Armstrong and multi-instrumentalists Edward Quinn and Joshua Moriarty.


“…with each release, Telenova transform, adapting past influences to produce imaginative sounds that reflect the free-flowing music scene in which they are made.” – THE GUARDIAN UK

“Exudes charm, gloriously inspired” – CLASH

“Classy, top-of-the-class pop music that’s matured nicely on the vine, it cuts a high-definition silhouette that’s both immediate and permanent” – DORK

“It’s rare for a band to arrive with such a polished and defined aesthetic this early. Telenova’s universe is so well realised you’ll be leaving footsteps in the band’s saturated deserts the moment you step through their portal” – NME, ★★★★
