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. However, disillusioned through their utopian visions and the aesthetics of sustainability, Attitude felt architecture has consequently become the tool for developers to sit comfortably within a political domain that is essentially capitalist and centrist.

Attitude saw things differently. This alternative pursuit for another way of doing architecture developed into a new project. A series of performances, really, where topics like architectural theory and spatial practice developed a new way of seeing architecture. 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 greenwashed, neoliberal, 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… Content Oscillator embraces the absurdity and contradictory nature of the world we live in.

Telehealth wear the color green to remind us all that the modern consumption cycle has become so focused on selling green as a product to alleviate the symptoms of a self-inflicted hellscape. Instead of being upset, Telehealth embraces uncertainty and absurdity.

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. Telehealth is an industry plant. Just as religion is the opium of the masses, Telehealth is now the opium of architects, policymakers, technocrats, AND NOW MUSICIANS!

Telehealth embraces technology. Although the future is much stupider than originally advertised, Telehealth works together with the world’s largest and most innovative corporations to offer solutions. The world is sick!!! Telehealth aims to relieve the painful symptoms of modern dread.

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.

That is all to say, Telehealth is not a famous band, but they are trying to become a famous band.

Telehealth is a for profit company.
