Telepathe release Destroyer via BZML

Telepathe released their long-awaited sophomore album Destroyer via the band’s own label BZML on August 7.
Destroyer has been a long time coming. Originally recorded in 2012 Telepathe, aka multi-instrumentalists Busy Gangnes and Melissa Livaudais, quit their day jobs and relocated to Los Angeles to record the album in a few short and intense months.
“Melissa and I decided to leave NY for a couple of months during the winter to write and record this new album,” Busy explains. “We rented an apartment on Sunset Boulevard. At the time we were reading a lot Science Fiction and researching California cults, which became themes that seeped into our music.”
With nods to freestyle Miami beats and Madonna’s early work, Destroyer is a focused cacophony of layered beats, synths and vocals bemoaning the complications and misunderstandings of relationships. Bonded by their mutual love for Hip Hop, UK garage and all that was rhythmically syncopated, Busy and Melissa first EP as Telepathe, Farewell Forest, was released in 2006 via Brooklyn label The Social Registry.  The girls moved to a warehouse in Bushwick where they built a home studio which saw the single ‘Sinister Militia’ come to fruition with remixes from the likes of Tyler Pope of !!!, and LCD Soundsystem. In 2008 Telepathe began working with TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, bringing their bedroom-made demos to his studio which would become Telepathe’s critically acclaimed debut album Dance Mother. For the next two years the band supporting acts such as Julian Casablancas and Vampire Weekend, as well as headlining their own world tour.
