The TELESCOPES – ” Of Tomorrow “

Posted: March 9, 2023 in MUSIC

The Telescopes issue their 15th album marks a complete change in dynamics; here we have the poetry of motion, solid grooves to the fore, leaving crystallised trails across a fluttering undercurrent of uplifting rhythm and hooks.

Lawrie’s voice, usually treated as an instrument equal to the rest of the sound now takes the reins, engaging the listener in a melodic swirl of radiant harmony that speaks, sometimes in a whisper, of love as revolution. every song on the album stands its ground, each one unique. everything from the composition to the performance, arrangements and production are leaps beyond previous offerings. this is an album to get lost in on the dance floor or headphones in equal measures.

The Telescopes are an all embracing concern that began in 1987, the only constant being sole composer/ instigator, northumbrian born Stephen Lawrie. “Of Tomorrow” is the 15th album from the Telescopes, the fifth for Tapete.

The album was created entirely by Lawrie at his studio in Shropshire, it is a departure from what the press often refer to as a ’wall of throb’ when describing the dense merge of noise and sound synonymous with most of the telescopes output.
