Telephone House's debut EP, Pendulum, contains three stories each with a different take on how we all deal with the balance between wanting love and actually discovering it. Drifting from delusion to clear-eyed reflection to an encounter with the divine, these songs are both deeply autobiographical and still revel in opaque metaphor.
Formed in the middle of the Coronavirus Pandemic, with songs composed mostly on phones, Telephone House (Daniel Bowman & Tarun Krishnan) reflects the introspective and lonely nature of our uncertain era. They have a penchant for sweeping strings and brass that seamlessly trade off with vocals, blending elements of Classical, Jazz, and Folk with hooky pop sensibilities.
Daniel Bowman is also the front man for Dallas pop/folk band Fox & the Bird.
