The track features a spoken word contribution from radio DJ Dan Hegarty’s mother
The final instalment in the Telefís video trilogy is here – with a new video for 'There Goes Waterface' (Voiced by Mrs. Hegarty) premiering below.
Following the release of their debut album, a hAon, earlier this month, Telefís – made up of Cathal Coughlan (Microdisney, Fatima Mansions) and renowned producer Jacknife Lee – recently returned with the Archbishop Beardmouth At The ChemOlympics EP.
The video trilogy is taken from the EP, featuring reimagined versions of tracks that originally featured on a hAon, with spoken word contributions from family and friends.
Each video was made by Jacknife Lee, using vintage footage from the RTÉ Archives.
"Mrs Hegarty is radio DJ Dan Hegarty’s mother," he tells Hot Press. "In deep lockdown I was trying to figure who I knew that could record vocals and had access to some older people. I thought our Dan must have a microphone and might see his mother.
"Like the rest of the recordings here, it was done on a phone," he continues. "Mrs Hegarty’s voice is beautiful. Her diction is perfect. Reciting lyrics is tougher than it seems. They’re not really meant to be spoken, they’re for singing and some of these words are odd. She slayed it. The video sticks with memory as its theme, half remembered, half experienced."
