FOR FANS OF: DUTCH UNCLES, DJANGO DJANGO, FIELD MUSIC
Forming out of the ashes of London's indie rockers Pete & the Pirates, Teleman traded that band's brash style for a subtler approach. Vocalist/guitarist Tommy Sanders, his keyboardist brother Jonny, and bassist Pete Cattermoul formed Teleman shortly after Pete & the Pirates disbanded in 2012, adding drummer Hiro Amamiya to complete the lineup. The band's demos revealed a wry, melodic take on guitar pop that nodded to legends like the Beach Boys and contemporaries such as Django Django, and they soon signed to Moshi Moshi Records.
2 albums down the line and with repeated support from 6music's Marc Riley latest record 'Brilliant Sanity' has been described as 'smart, retro-futurist pop' by Mojo and 'as fresh as it is reminiscent, as catchy as it is challenging and thoughtful' by The Line of Best Fit.
