Telephone Explosions are experimental dream-pop duo Dolores Fogarty and Adrian Mee, formed in Maynooth in 2016.
After a brief hiatus in 2018, the Kildare pair will return with a new full-length album for 2019, and one heralded by new single ‘Still Water’. Outwardly, ‘Still Water’ appears to be dreamy affair laced with bewitching atmospheric tones, swirling textures and mesmerising elegance; however, beneath this chic veneer, there is bubbling undercurrent of apprehension and dread. While the beguiling qualities of Fogarty’s soothing silky vocals never falters, the serene ambience is pricked and prodded by manic bells, flurries of unsettling electronics and steamy drum beats. A dreamy meditative journey that is simultaneously beguiling, beautiful and foreboding; the juxtaposition is an instant hook and one that makes for an altogether wonderful song.
Listen to ‘Still Water’ below now and a new album is promised later in 2019.
