Watch Tele Novella’s Dia de los Muertos Dance on ‘Trouble in Paradise’
Austin band's 'Cosmic Dial Tone' EP due out on June 14
When Austin psych-pop band Tele Novella released their video for “Umbrella at the Station” back in October, the band felt influenced by equal parts Nancy Sinatra and The Virgin Suicides, combining classic ’60s rhythms with a macabre undertones. Their newest video for “Trouble in Paradise,” the first single off their forthcoming Cosmic Dial Tone EP, drives that aesthetic home. The song has a slinky, staccato beat that allows lead vocalist Natalie Gordon’s deep, syrupy voice draw you close before slipping away with a snake-like hiss. Naturally, the accompanying video for “Trouble in Paradise” is a Dia De Los Muertos prom-slash-seance, complete with face paint, flower crowns and a smoke machine. It’s the oddities of Beetlejuice meeting the collage-stylings of Rookie Mag, all drenched in darkness. Watch the video for “Trouble in Paradise” above and keep a look out for Cosmic Dial Tone, which is due out on June 14 via Lolipop Records.
