Telefís, the groundbreaking collaboration between two Irish iconoclasts, revered singer-songwriter Cathal Coughlan and world-renowned producer Garret "Jacknife" Lee, continued to work on music following their debut release of "a hAon" in March 2022. Sadly Coughlan died on May 18th. 'a hAon' playfully dissected the early days of Irish society in the TV era through a prism of electronic dance music, drawing on what they saw as a 'corrosive nostalgia'. It also paid homage to their musical heroes of the punk and post-punk era. Kraftwerk fighting with The Human League for a parking spot on Capel Street. Amongst the muscular beats and distressed synth stabs there are strange ballads,haunting melodies and somber reflections. 'a Dó' broadens these sonic horizons and opens up the band's output to outside collaborators with guest appearances from High Llamas main man Sean O'Hagan, Echo & The Bunnymen's Will Sergeant, legendary Mancunians A Certain Ratio, and the inimitable Jah Wobble.
