Led by Alexander Attitude, Telehealth is an unpredictable pop band with heavy nods to post-punk, minimal synth, egg-punk, new wave, art rock, glam, and krautrock. In 2017, Attitude quit his music to pursue a career in Architecture. Formerly a touring musician in bands like Kithkin, Deep Sea Diver, Bryan John Appleby – the transition from being a musician to an architect was not so simple. Over time, Attitude grew discontent by the architectural practice’s proclivity to ‘save the world’ through the lens of design. Attitude thought, what if architecture was no longer about buildings, but instead used as a way of thinking and questioning our world and our place within it? These questions became sounds, those sounds became demos, those demos then became an album. That album became Content Oscillator.
Content Oscillator is the debut album of Telehealth, an angular collection of songs that alleviate the modern challenge of ‘just trying to not suck’ in the reality TV, trash fire of a world we have built for ourselves. Utilizing a palette of cold arpeggiated synthesizers, sharp drum machines, herky-jerky rhythms, angular guitar work, melodic bass lines, and stupidly catchy melodies dowsed in honest sarcasm… Telehealth embraces the absurdity and contradictory nature of the world we live in.
Telehealth is a joke, but it is not a joke. As a product itself, Telehealth is here to remind us that everything is a product placement. Each Telehealth performance is driven to suspend disbelief about change, but it is also a way of making-do of this dystopian reality we live in. Telehealth is a way of thinking and questioning our world and our place within it.
