Telephone Explosions are an electronic duo comprising Maynooth couple Dolores Fogarty and Adrian Mee. The pair’s diverse interests merge with Adrian’s electronic background in his speciality of Computer Music, and the traditional Irish music origins of Dolores, who went on to become a member of the band Hvmmingbyrd until 2016.
Their first single “Pocket” was recorded at their home, and mixed and mastered by Andrew Carroll. The song draws influence from artists like Slowdive, Julee Cruise and Mazzy Star, with low-key fuzz guitar interplaying with sweet, halting vocals. The video was made using holiday footage taken at various beauty spots in Ireland, including Skellig Michael in Co. Kerry and Mount Errigal in Co. Donegal. Inspired by number stations, hidden transmissions and unbroken codes, Telephone Explosions plan to release their debut EP this summer.
