Pointer Recordings signs Telenova for release of debut single ‘Bones’
Melbourne three-piece band Telenova has signed to Pointer Recordings.
The announcement coincides with the release of the band’s debut single ‘Bones’, which premiered overnight on triple j’s Home & Hosed.
The band is made up of Angeline Armstrong, Edward Quinn from Slum Social and Joshua Moriarty from Miami Horror, and was assembled by Death Cab For Cutie’s Chris Walla at an APRA SongHubs competition in early 2020.
The label said the band has a quiet confidence and trades in a sound which is unequivocally Melbourne, but has global potential.
Victoria Sweetie Zamora, head of labels and promotions at Remote Control Records/ Pointer Recordings, was full of praise for the trio.
“Working alongside Angeline, Telenova and the team at CLBR has been a dream come true. I’ve been floored by their talent & incredible vision for the project and I’m so humbled that they trusted the Pointer Recordings team to be their partners in this,” she said.
The band’s vocalist, Armstrong, is thrilled to be joining the female-led team.
“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,” she said.
Telenova has sold out two shows in Melbourne, however a third has just been announced for Thursday, April 8 at Northcote Social Club. Final tickets to Sydney’s launch at the Lansdowne Hotel on Wednesday, March 24 are also available. Tickets and information available here.
