They transfixed us with their stunning debut single ‘Bones’, but now Melbourne’s Telenova are back to ‘Tranquilize’ us with the follow up.
Seriously, if you’ve not yet had the pleasure of listening to ‘Bones’, be sure to check it out HERE. Incredible, right?
Their follow-up single ‘Tranquilize’, meantime, proves this up and coming three piece are no one-trick-pony.
Vocalist Angeline explains how the track came about.
“I was actually flicking through a thesaurus and the word ‘Tranquilize’ jumped out at me, it just rang so nicely on the tongue and was so inherently visceral,” she says.
“I was humming gibberish over the hypnotic Rhodes chords that Josh had laid down, and we heard what sounded like ‘Poseidon’s on the water’ – it was the first time in a writing session with Ed and Josh, and the first time I’d been in a writing session where a poetic, literary lyric idea like that wasn’t shunned and coined as ‘unrelatable’.
“It resonated. We followed the thread, playing into Siren mythology as a metaphor for falling in love – the power of attraction to transfix and tranquilize you.”
And that it does. There’s just something effortless and timeless about Angeline’s vocal; it beckons and seduces you with its warmth, oozing with sweetness. And they’re layered over sumptuous production.
Let Telenova ‘Tranquilize’ you again.
