Cinema for Your Ears: Listen to Telenova’s “Teardrop” Single

Telenova (@telenovaofficial) is a rising band from Australia consisting of Front-woman Angeline Armstrong with multi-instrumentalist/producers Joshua Moriarty (Miami Horror) and Edward Quinn (Slum Sociable). Not too long ago, they released a stunning, high-quality official video for their new “Teardrop” single, released via the U.K. tastemaker label, Fiction.

“We wanted to capture the volatile nature of our ever-changing human emotions in this song. I have this innate longing and hope for stability and joy, but in tension to that, I often find myself doing and saying things I don’t mean to say or feel. Josh and I were interested in exploring that tension in the lyrics, how sometimes even the journey towards happiness and light can be tinged with a sadness or darkness, ‘a teardrop on the sunshine.’” – frontwomen Angeline explained

On the surface, the gripping nature of “Teardrop” has a mystique to it, invoking both warmth and darkness in equal measures. The video, directed by Angeline Armstrong and fellow director Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore (Courtney Barnett, Hiatus Kaiyote), works in tandem to show everything that embodies Telenova’s intricate and thought-provoking sound.

Telenova’s poignant music plays like cinema for your ears. To date, the trio has already headlined shows in London, Athens, Prism Berlin, and Hamburg before joining fellow countryman RUEL on tour across Europe along with a slot at Reeperbahn, where they played tracks like “Bones” and “Tranquilize” that have made a real connection with fans in their homeland and beyond. Along with being a regular on Triple J, they’ve been played across tastemaker radio stations such as BBC 6Music & KCRW along with strong reviews in several major media outlets.

At home, Telenova has enjoyed various accolades 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.

Telenova was initially influenced by the likes of Karen O, Caroline Polachek, Portishead, Weyes Blood, Gorillaz, Radiohead, and Lana Del Rey, but pulled together from different personal tastes which form the eclectic sound of everything they do.
