In addition, the band have announced a limited custom marbled black and white vinyl repress of Stained Glass Love featuring their self-remixed EP by alter-ego Telenoir mirrored on the B-side which will be released on 14th April.

To coincide with the regional tour announce, Telenova are also releasing fan favourite single ‘Lost In The Rush’, which was previewed on triple j’s Good Nights and is a highlight of their live set from the past two years of relentless touring across Australia, New Zealand and UK. In many ways, ‘Lost In The Rush’ is what most have come to expect from the trio – a euphoric melting pot of strings, breakbeats and vocals taking influence from trip-hop, alt-indie and big beat.

On the making of the track, frontwoman Angeline Armstrong shares “Ed had been working away on the instrumental late one night in what could only be called a creative blizzard. He brought it into the studio to show us and immediately that string hook struck me as so evocative of another time and another place that was hard to define. We’ve been playing this one in the live set for a long time now and it’s become a bit of a fan favourite, it’s a great moment to whisk the crowd away with us into our fever dream of sorts and wanted to gift it to our fans while we’re deep in album recording mode in the meantime.”

The track will be given more airtime on the band’s ‘Lost In The Rush’ regional tour which will traverse the country from Margaret River across mountains to Katoomba and back again between April and June. There will be an exclusive Spotify Fans First presale on Wednesday, 8th March with general on-sale live on Friday, 10th March.

2022 was a milestone year for Telenova, winning ‘Breakthrough Independent Artist of the Year’ at the AIR Awards, performing at the 2022 APRA Awards, before releasing their second EP Stained Glass Love and garnering major support from Triple J, The Guardian, BBC Radio 6, NME, Vogue Magazine and more.
