The Telescopes were founded in 1987 by Stephen Lawrie and have been “mining a unique anti-myopian seam of highly influential experimental, drone, noise, dream & psych for over 20 years”.
Their latest album, “Hidden Fields”, was recorded and produced here at Riverside and we're delighted to see that it has been receiving some positive attention in the music press.
“Former shoegazing noiseniks continue to get better with age”
“Lawrie's quest is one of endless exploration, following his ears to where the most intriguing music happens”
“The Telescopes have constantly forged routes between the tropes of melodic shoegaze and abrasive, full-on dissonance”
Hidden Fields will be released on tapete records on the 7th of August 2015
