Telescopes are a grunge-based recording project featuring writer /producer Arik Blum (The Fabric, Sarah Rzek, Cash for Gold, Straythread One Giant Thing, Pablo Discobar), Mick Rankin (Strine Singers) and Danny Hill.
Heavily influenced by 90’s luminaries Sonic Youth, and Pavement, Telescopes present a sound that is immediately captivating; balancing rawness and honesty with unsettling, abrasive and discordant instrumentation. Replicating their immense palate of sounds from their critically acclaimed EP on stage, Telescopes’ live set is one not to be missed.
“Stunning debut….With Blum having cut his teeth as a producer over the last 5 years, the songs have a distinctly colossal sound” Tonedeaf
” There’s real sense of care to the EP, a clear focus and passion to the writing and producing side of music….Considering how much promise the band shows on their debut EP it wouldn’t be too farfetched to see this band go far as they continue to push their songwriting exploring new and innovative sounds” – HHHHappy
