Upon glancing quickly at the handsome gents of Telegraph, it would be easy to brand the Nashville-based trio as another boy band looking to knock One Direction off the throne. But we’re here to tell you that these guys — brothers Marshall and Red Cunningham, and their best friend Wes “Rocco” Beale — are more like 1D’s edgier, grungier cousins…the ones who show up to the family reunion, pour a flask of hooch into the punch bowl and making out with the date you brought by the end of the night. It doesn’t hurt that the guys are talented musicians who inject a much-needed dose of classic rock guitar riffs into their catchy-as-hell pop songs.
Today Idolator is premiering Telegraph’s second single, “Rhinestone Chapel.” It’s a cut off the band’s upcoming debut EP, which is due out on June 3. Give the song a listen below.
“Rocco called Red and me the first time he visited Nashville to tell us about this really quaint wedding chapel on Music Row called the Rhinestone Chapel, and he had the idea to write a song inspired by the wedding bit from The Hangover,” Marshall tells Idolator. “And I still remember like yesterday the night we all sat in our basement, so excited because we all knew we had finally figured out our sound. This is a song that’s been in the works for two years now. It helped us flesh out what we wanted to sound like, and we are so excited for it to finally be ready.”
