Telenova

Stained Glass Love

Pointer Recordings

Australian trio Telenova have an ethereal art pop sound that combines moody vocals with subdued club beats. Vocalist Angeline Armstrong is a filmmaker and writer as well as a musician. She is joined by Edward Quinn and Joshua Moriarty who are both multi-instrumentalists and producers. Stained Glass Love is their second EP, the five songs icy electropop with hints of prog and soul in the DNA.

Lyrically, the songs go to some dark places. “Haunted” deals with addiction. Title track “Stained Glass Love” brings the EP back into the light with its theme of rebirth. Armstrong is very involved with the production of the band’s videos, and “Scarlet” is arty and eerily static with Angeline standing immobile in a yellowish light, framed in red. The video for “Stained Glass Love” was purposely shot on expired 8mm film to give the images unique textures. It features quick cuts between random images, Quinn and Moriarty in silhouette, and Anderson looking waifish in white.
