Experience the Magic of Telenova’s New Disco-Dance Single, “Power”

Telenova (@telenovaofficial) is an on-the-rise Australian trio. Not too long ago, they released a groovy disco-dance single, “Power,” co-produced by the band and Styalz Fuego (Troye Sivan, Tate McRae, Odesza, and Imagine Dragons).

“The song is a fable-like story of a flower in love with the sun, but the sun is setting. And the flower is afraid of being left alone in the darkness without the very thing that gives it power and strength. Of course, the flower is unaware that the sun inevitably always rises again.

The more we kept building out the lyrics the more Josh and I realized it’s a fairly multi-layered metaphor for love. Inevitably (and beautifully) people will hear different things in the meaning of ‘Power,’ it resonates on a romantic-love kind of micro level, but can really extend out to a divine kind of love and existential longing – whatever your idea of ‘God’ or the universe or something ‘bigger’ it’s the cry of a human being out to whatever is out there, to like, not be abandoned basically, not be left to our own devices all on our own. And then we shroud that all in a big fun dancey disco tune – because why not.” – Angeline explained the creation of “Power”

The official video, directed by frontwoman Angeline Armstong, is brimming with vibrant color and otherworldly imagination.

In a day of big announcements, the band has also shared news of their debut album, “Time Is A Flower,” to be released on August 16th via Fiction. The project will be played live across Telenova’s forthcoming European tour which will see them touch base in London on October 1st at The Outernet’s The Lower Third. Then it will see them pass through the Greek, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, German, Belgian, French, Dutch, and British capitals amongst other cities where they’ll be playing various songs from “Time Is A Flower.”

Telenova is comprised of Asian-Australian frontwoman Angeline Armstrong who combines her brilliance as a songwriter and filmmaker to form the magic you hear today and Edward Quinn and Joshua Moriarty who are incredibly talented multi-instrumentalists and songwriters. The band 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 that form the eclectic sound of everything they do.
