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 while follow-up 'Basketball Boy' saw them embark on their first ever national tour, scoring nods via LNWY, triple j, and widely amongst community radio FBi Radio, Triple R, PBSFM, 4ZZZ, SYN FM and more.
Telete's shimmering pop sensibilities have seen them support Julia Jacklin, Rainbow Chan, Totally Mild, Ball Park Music, Hatchie, Ali Barter, Alyx Dennison and Holly Throsby, as well as local favourites like Mei Saraswati, Jacob Diamond 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.
Telete will release their debut EP in June 2018, preceded by new single 'Like Honey'.
