TELELECTRIX – “SYNTHETIC FANTASY”
A Spill Exclusive Music Premiere
Telelectrix is a Boston-based synthpop band founded by Steven Borek (songwriting, synths, electronic drums) in 2014, featuring Kate Lindsay (songwriting, synths), and vocalist Olea Nickitina. With eclectic influences of modern electropop, prog rock, and 80s new wave, they have a full sound with complex layers of synths, electric and synth bass, with powerful vocals. Telelectrix’s debut full length entitled Embrace the Change is to be released on June 6th.
The 9-track album features kinetic singles “Synthetic Fantasy” and “Something Golden” and tells a chronological story filled with uncertainty, heartbreak, escapism, and ultimately, hope. The lush, layered synth production combined with heavy electronic beats & warm vocals draws influences from both decades past and current, creating a sound that is uniquely its own.
Telelectrix are excited to celebrate the release of their debut LP with a concert in Boston MA on June 8th at the Middle East Upstairs nightclub.
“‘Synthetic Fantasy’ is more or less a metaphor for the darker side of escapism, whatever that may be is for the listener to decide…a sort of virtual reality that they create for themselves, a way to hide from the daily doldrums that we all tend to get caught up in, and one that ultimately is somewhat self-destructive for the subject in this song.”
