Tele Novella will release their new album House of Souls on September 23rd. The band recently debuted their video for single “Heavy Balloon”.
Tele Novella have also announced a run of North American tour dates later this fall with Yellow Year Records label-mate The Tins. The tour dates will see them play NYC, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston and more. See below for a full run down and watch this space for more news.
Tele Novella is an inspired macabre-pop band out of Austin, TX. While one may detect the influence of the nocturnal jungles of Os Mutantes or the lapelled, knee-socked smarts of Belle and Sebastian, they have cobbled together a special kind of mineral all their own worth making room on the Table of Elements for. Earnest, yet sinister; Vampy, but sentimental. The precise recipe that goes into this concoction cannot be revealed, but it is a delightful snow globe of warm, colorful darkness.
In 2014, they won a contest for free recording time at Dub Narcotic Studios in Olympia, WA. This resulted in their first single, “Trouble in Paradise,” that was later featured in the ABC television series Pretty Little Liars. Not long after that in 2015, their EP Cosmic Dial Tone was released on Los Angeles label Lollipop Records on the heels of a Wes Anderson tribute compilation (American Laundromat Records), to which they contributed a contagiously glad version of “Stephanie Says” by The Velvet Underground.
