Following the acclaim of Cathal Coughlan's long-awaited solo album "Song of Co-
Aklan" in March 2021, Dimple Discs is proud to present the debut album by Telefis,
the label's most ambitious album to date, and one that features two of Ireland's
most beloved figures in popular music.
Part celebration, part satire, Telefis (pronounced Tele-feesh, the Gaelic word for
Television) is an exploration of Irish nostalgia and modern global hierarchies,
strange characters and caricatures springing from Coughlan's fertile imagination,
while Jacknife Lee creates irresistible electro-funk backdrops full of melodic,
squelchy synths and thunderous basslines.
A unique electronic pop collaboration between two Irish iconoclasts –
acclaimed producer Garret "Jacknife" Lee (U2, REM, Two Door Cinema Club)
and singer-lyricist Cathal Coughlan (Microdisney, The Fatima Mansions)
