Telepathe (aka multi-instrumentalists Busy Gangnes and Melissa Livaudais) have quite a history.
The duo initially started recording music in 2006 by moving to a warehouse in Bushwick and recording their first EP ‘Farewell Forest’. This was followed in 2008 with their debut album ‘Dance Mother’, which they worked on with TV on the Radio‘s Dave Sitek.
They later 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.”

The track has been taken from their long-awaited second album ‘Destroyer’. Co-produced with Lewis Pesacov and mixed by Matty Green, the girls have started their own label BZML to release their album on their own terms.
