Telenova sign to Pointer Recordings

Pointer Recordings is proud to introduce Melbourne three-piece Telenova. Their debut single ‘Bones’ was premiered overnight by triple j’s Declan Byrne on Home & Hosed and is released today alongside a video of the band performing live at The Night Cat in Melbourne. Watch via the image below.

Telenova will launch ‘Bones’ at two sold-out single shows tomorrow night at Melbourne’s Colour Club, with a third Melbourne show just announced for Thursday 8th April at Northcote Social Club. Final tickets to Sydney’s launch at Lansdowne Hotel on Wednesday 24th March are available. All tickets via

Telenova is fronted by the alluring vocals of multi-disciplined creative Angeline Armstrong, alongside the refined musicality of Edward Quinn (Slum Sociable) and Joshua Moriarty (Miami Horror). With an air of quiet confidence, thanks to their self-directed cinematic aesthetics and trip-hop influenced production, Telenova trade in a sound that’s unequivocally Melbourne yet global in scope.

Assembled by Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie) at an APRA SongHubs writing camp in early 2020, Telenova evoke the elegance and feminine power of Lana Del Ray and Karen O, the sophistication of Massive Attack and Portishead and the effortless energy of Khruangbin and Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

Speaking about debut single ‘Bones’, Angeline Armstrong explains – “We started with that percussive intro, like rattling bones, and it reminded me of this feeling I’ve had of being so trapped inside my own head, my own skin and bones. We started to envision this elaborate narrative of melancholia and longing, a girl trapped in her own bones…her own disillusionment.”

On joining the Pointer Recordings family, Armstrong shared – “We’re thrilled to be working with Sweetie and the strong, female-led team at Pointer. From day one of meeting Sweetie, I had such a respect for her bold and progressive approach – there’s a tenacity and loyalty there to artists that’s hard to come by. It’s a dream to be working with a taste-maker label like Pointer, with such a long-standing legacy (under Remote Control / Beggars Group) of supporting the careers of so many artists I respect and admire like Radiohead, The National, Big Thief and The xx.”
