Telegraphs

“…a pop rock monster....barbed with youthful aggression. If there's a god it'll sell like hotcakes.”
ROCK SOUND “…Young Brighton lot Telegraphs know a thing or two about melody. Then they give it a spiky edge a la Biffy Clyro and, presto, a quality work of angular rock goodness.”
KERRANG! “…a great big burning ball of fire straight at your record collection…. this is a ballsy twos-up of an EP that can only lead to bigger and better things.”
4/5 - TUNED MAGAZINE ‘Across A Wire EP’ Review “…combines ice and fire, burning from the inside with steely confidence and lyrical suss”
