Essentially Pop Meets: Telephone Explosions

While on her Irish Roadshow recently, Lisa spoke to Dolores and Adrian from Telephone Explosions, Maynooth, Ireland. Dolores Fogarty previously sang with Irish electro pop act, Hvmminbyrd, but has decided to form a duo with her partner Adrian Mee.

The pair have so far released two songs, ‘Pocket’, and ‘Significant’. The latter is described as ” a harmonic meditation on our place in the universe”. A dream-pop style piece, it reflects the duo’s inspirations which come from number stations, hidden transmissions, and unbroken codes. They plan to release their debut album early next year.

You can catch Telephone Explosions at Electric Picnic on the Body & Soul stage, Stradbally, County Laois, on Sepember 1. Find more information here.

Check out Telephone explosions online on their official website, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Soundcloud, and YouTube. You can find their music on Spotify, iTunes, and Bandcamp.
