Today, Teleman announced a headline show for Whelans, on Friday 19th October. Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Wednesday, 2nd May.
Now a four-piece made up of Sanders, his brother Jonny on synths, Amamiya on drums, and Pete Cattermoul on bass, the process of touring has honed them into a spectacular a live act, fleshing out those studio-forged tracks, so that by the end of the touring cycle, Sanders says, “We’d made up our minds that we wanted to record our next record in a very different way. Just us, in a room, playing together, to each other, in a very live and spontaneous way.”
Their second album Brilliant Sanity shows Sanders as an accomplished and distinctive lyricist, with a passion for the music of words themselves and an eye for the singular image. He is, he says, a great admirer of Dylan’s lyrics, for the way that “a lot of them are very enigmatic, and even though you’ve no idea what he’s singing about, each line has really strong imagery, pictures are conjured up right in front of you.”
The band whittled their haul of 50 songs down to a more manageable figure and recorded them in Dan Carey’s studio in Streatham, South London. Carey was chosen, Sanders says, because “his studio is a treasure trove of strange instruments and gadgets, just a musician’s dream…” and Carey himself “a really fantastic producer — he works really quickly, he seems able to filter out the good ideas.”
While the songs’ structure changed little, it was Carey’s suggestion that they choose core synthesiser sounds — the Mellotron, the Roland Jupiter, the Korg Trident — to help define the aesthetic of the album, a decision Sanders credits with helping to find “certain tones and textures we’d been struggling to find our demos.”
Teleman released their brand new single Submarine Life on April 19th
