Bio

After months of anticipation, Brisbane based post-punk/dance outfit Teleprompter released their self-titled EP. The band has been keeping busy, touring with the Big Day Out festival, playing Parklife and Good Vibrations and receiving regular play on Triple J for their last release, Boxcutter. Teleprompter are as pumped as ever to share this next set of tracks with their building Australian fan base. Teleprompter merges angular post-punk with indie rock elements, resulting in an enigmatic, no-holds-barred sound that is a departure from conventional classification. The first single from this EP is Banshee, produced by Yama Indra (G.L.O.V.E.S/Damn Arms). Banshee, as the name suggests, is a frenzied indie-punk tune with melodic vocals and catchy guitar work. This danceable and charismatic 5-track EP also includes a special dance-floor shaking remix by Shanghai DJ/Producer R3 of crowd pleaser, Boxcutter. The Teleprompter EP is currently available on iTunes and via the band's Bandcamp page (teleprompter.bandcamp.com)

So heavily into this new tune. Angular, ragged guitars, yelling vocals, harmonies, fast paced drum beat.... PARTY SONG. Good one guys.

Killer song... really tight instrumentation. The style is slightly derivative of ATDI but it's so good that it's not so much of an issue. Great work.
