Biography

After months of anticipation, Brisbane based post-punk/dance outfit Teleprompter released their self-titled EP in May, 2011. Teleprompter merges angular post-punk with indie rock elements, resulting in an enigmatic, no-holds-barred sound. The EP was produced by Yama Indra (G.L.O.V.E.S/Damn Arms). The first single, “Banshee”, as the name suggests, is a frenzied indie-punk tune with melodic vocals and catchy guitar work.

Teleprompter have recently (18/Oct) released their first ever film clip, to celebrate the release of “Dinobot”, the second single from the 2011 self-titled EP. The film clip is a heavily stylised take on classic 80’s action film, heavily utilising green screens, video game graphics and cheesy effects. Think Power Rangers, The Mighty Boosh, or Scott Pilgrim vs The World. Within approximately a week of release the clip had racked up just shy of 750 views, was featured on Triple J’s Home and Hosed blog, and premiered on the home page of CMJ.com. The band hit the road during November 2011 to play club shows (Can’t Say @ Miss Libertine, Sosueme @ Oxford Arts, Cobra Kai @ Oh Hello) across the east coast of Australia in celebration of these achievements.

On 2011 single Banshee:

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

4 out of 5 - Zan Rowe (Triple J Radio Presenter)

On 2011 single Dinobot:

"Bit of a solemn vibe but I'm digging the variety on your ep. Very full, intense and kinda chaotic and that moment ~ 3:00 is mayhem! Nice one."

4 out of 5 - Lewis McKirdy (Triple J Radio Presenter)

On 2010 single Boxcutter:

“This song channels the sweat-soaked energetic feel of acts like Death From Above 1979, Les Savy Fav and early Rapture. Makes me wanna angry-dance.”

4 out of 5 - Dan Buhagiar (Triple J Senior Music Producer)

The band has been keeping busy, touring with the Big Day Out festival (2010), playing Parklife (2010 - complete with Star Wars costumes), Good Vibrations (2011) and receiving regular airplay on Triple J for both the recent EP, and the earlier single "Boxcutter".
