Bio

Telefon Tel Aviv is a Los Angeles-based experimental electronic music which filters a wide variety of intense emotions through highly advanced sound design. The group was formed in 1999 by Josh Eustis and the late Charlie Cooper, originally based in New Orleans, and then Chicago before Cooper's death. The two met in high school, but did not begin working on music together until after university studies. Since 1999, Josh and Charlie had been working to cultivate their sound, based largely in electronic music, but that also showed flourishes of classical, vintage soul, ambient drone, and noise, among other things.

The project officially debuted in 2001 with Fahrenheit Fair Enough, a collection of glitchy, melodic IDM instrumentals. Earning critical acclaim as well as devoted fans, the duo released more accessible efforts such as the synth pop-influenced 2009 full-length Immolate Yourself. Following Cooper's unexpected death, Eustis continued TTA as a solo venture while additionally working with Nine Inch Nails and Puscifer, as well as other projects such as the Black Queen and Second Woman. Dreams Are Not Enough, the first TTA full-length in a decade, arrived in 2019.
