Joshua Moriarty, frontman of Miami Horror and one-third of Melbourne cinematic trio TELENOVA, has announced a headline show at The Brunswick Ballroom on Thursday 9 December to launch his new album, Melancholia, which will be released on Friday 19 November.
This comes alongside the release of his new single and video, ‘We’re Coming Back’
With ‘We’re Coming Back’s release comes an elegant video, shot at Brunswick Ballroom in Melbourne/Naarm by Tim Williams. Capturing the ambience of the beloved venue, the video sees Josh perform the track alongside TELENOVA’s Angeline Armstrong and Natasha Newling from RAHAB.
