After a series of self-released cassettes and digital EPs, Jonny Telafone released his first official album Romeo Must Cry on Chapter
Music in February 2015.
The album presents a darkly sexual near future, both disturbing and
alluring. The world could end at any minute, oblivion lurks around
every corner, but there are still human connections to be made
amidst a gleaming metropolis.

Seductive first single The Prayer was posted on Pitchfork, Indie
Shuffle, Flavorwire and elsewhere, while next single Waking Up
Crying features rising LA rapper Bones, who can be heard on ASAP
Rocky’s latest album. There’s also an upcoming video for Waking Up
Crying directed by HTRK’s Jonnine Standish.
Elsewhere the album features contributions form members of The
Ocean Party, TV Colours, Danger Beach, Forces and Orbits.
Live, Jonny’s music takes on a surreal, often shirtless intensity. He
has shared stages with the likes of HTRK, Kirin J Callinan, and Client
Liaison, and played Melbourne Music Week and White Night Festival.
