Telephone Explosions Announce Album Release

After a brief hiatus in 2018, experimental dream-pop duo Telephone Explosions return with a new full-length album for 2019. The self titled release will be available to stream/download on all platforms on 23rd April, as well as on CD which can be purchased directly via Bandcamp.

The duo finished writing and recording after the birth of their second child in 2018, and it was co-produced in Audioland Studios with Anthony Gibney, and mastered by Hayley Connolly at Masterlabs. Wide-ranging influences can be heard throughout the album, with drum machines and synthetic chimes sitting comfortably alongside ambient field recordings and hints of Irish traditional. 

The self-released debut draws on themes of hidden transmissions, unsolved mysteries, new life and waking the dead: “Writing about people like Elisa Lam and Lyle Stevik inspired us to capture the wider human experience – the microcosms of despair, the joy, the fear and confusion that we have all felt.” – DF/AM

The album launch takes place at the Teacher’s Club, Parnell Square West, Dublin 1 on Thursday 18th April at 7pm. Entry is free and precedes the official release on 23rd April.

Comprised of Dolores Fogarty and Adrian Mee, the band formed in Maynooth in 2016 and released their first single ‘Pocket’ in January 2017 to a warm critical reception. The band have played at Body&Soul @ Electric Picnic and Sligo Live as well as occasional intimate gigs in Kildare and Dublin.
