Telete - Basketball Boy

Telete - Basketball Boy
"Like being slowly mown down in a field of violets" - Alex Griffin

Drawing inspiration from acts such as Broadcast, Julia Holter and Beach House, Telete weave strings, synth lines and canned percussion together to build warm-hued compositions that simmer underneath intimate vocals. In a live setting, the two synchronise their looped instruments to build layered, tautly structured songs, accompanied by off-kilter dance moves. Their debut single ‘Drip Dry’, released in early 2017, received airplay on RTRFM and triple j’s Home and Hosed.

Over the last two years, Telete have supported Julia Jacklin, Alyx Dennison and Holly Throsby, as well as local favourites like Mei Saraswati and Akioka. They have also performed at notable events such as Hush (An Evening of Quiet Music), WAMFest, Hidden Treasures, RTRFM’s Radio Party and Ships in the Night.

About this track...

Iridescent and melancholic, 'Basketball Boy' responds to a universally-shared lifetime of accumulated sexist microaggressions, languishing prettily under the weight of global, seemingly impenetrable gaslighting ("And he says, 'Most of what you're feeling is your own fault anyway'/He says 'If you choose to be offended then that's the choice you've made'").
