Teleman have revealed their brand new single — and the support acts for their upcoming UK tour.
‘Düsseldorf’ is the second single from their forthcoming album, ‘Brilliant Sanity’, and will no doubt be on the setlist when the band hit the road at the end of March, joined by Oscar and Moshi Moshi labelmates NZCA Lines.
They reach KOKO in London on 14 April 2016. Tickets are available now.
The follow-up to their debut, ‘Breakfast’, came together over six months in a rehearsal space as the group worked on songs written by each band member: Tommy Sanders (vocals and guitar), Jonny Sanders (synths), Pete Cattermoul (bass), and Hiro Amamiya (drums).
“In our rehearsal room we had a white board, and for each song we’d write the chords up on the white board, write the structure out. We’ve got different colour pens and stuff. It’s very professional,” explains primary songwriter Tommy Sanders, who wrote most of his lyrics on tour.
Taking advantage of the band’s live prowess, the resulting songs were recorded in a live and spontaneous way with Bat For Lashes and Nick Mulvey producer Dan Carey.
“Sometimes a record can take itself a bit too seriously,” says Sanders of the recording process. “So it’s good to have a bit of a light-hearted side. It’s good just to enjoy making it, for your own sake — because if you’re enjoying making the songs then other people are going to enjoy listening to them.”
‘Brilliant Sanity’ is out on 8 April 2016.
