TeleMama

What started out as just a fun little side project became a lot more than that after TeleMama took part in the Faroese annual music competition, Sement, in the year 2021. The expectations were low and what resulted was what many have called a ‘breath of fresh air’ in the Faroese music scene. With most of Faroese music being heavy, dark and perhaps a reflection of the surroundings of the island archipelago, TeleMama sought out to bring a positive and upbeat style of Indie Rock on the scene. With their sound inspired by household names like Arctic Monkeys and The Strokes and also more recent outfits such as Her’s, Mac DeMarco, and Boy Pablo, the lyrics delve into lighthearted subjects of love, lust, having fun, and nights out in the capital of Torshavn while also touching on more serious subjects such as depression and identity crisis. The main goal being the importance of relatability while still remaining excitingly original.

Only a few months after their performance at Sement 2021 TeleMama were named as part of the line up at the annual G! Festival the same year. With more material in their arsenal, the boys were left disappointed after the cancellation of the festival due to the pandemic, but they kept their heads held high, played some gigs, and spent time in the studio. Having released their very first single, “Identity”, from their upcoming EP, they’re looking forward to releasing a couple more singles warming up to their EP release in May.

They’re hoping their music will bring hope to others of finally having an ordinary summer with fun and games after a drawn-out pandemic.

As for future plans, the band’s working on getting as many live gigs as possible as well as continuing to write more kick-ass music.
