Teleman to play Liverpool’s Buyers Club in April


Teleman to play Buyers Club on April 1 next year

As London indie popsters Teleman drop a new track, Getintothis’ Will Neville looks ahead to their album and a stop-off at The Buyers Club next April.

Teleman were formed by three fifths of Pete & The Pirates – singer Tommy Sanders, bassist Peter Cattermoul and Jonny Sanders on keys – shortly after their split at the end of 2012, and are now joined by drummer Hiro Amamiya.

Their first album, 2014’s Breakfast, was produced by Suede’s Bernard Butler, establishing their quirky indie pop sound right off the bat.

Their only subsequent release is the stand-alone Strange Combinations, produced by Dan Carey, who has worked with the likes of Toy, Franz Ferdinand and Kate Tempest. This came out on Speedy Wunderground, a singles label where each release is written and recorded in one day.

The sophomore album was also produced by Carey and is due out next spring, with some of it being previewed at the By The Sea festival in Margate last month.

New track Fall In Time builds from a gentle, slightly gloomy piano phrase through some brooding orchestration into a typically yearning chorus, with Tommy stating that “the devil’s gonna win this time”.

The frontman has said, “it’s funny how such a dark and heavy song can have an element of optimism to it”.
