Teleman have always, in their own unassuming way, crafted perfect Day-glo pop since they formed from the ashes of Pete and the Pirates. As with other low- key UK indie bands like Metronomy, Field Music and Hot Chip, they seamlessly meld electronics with slightly playful, occasionally melancholic songwriting.
The new single, Simple Like Us , taken from a forthcoming EP, continues in this trajectory. Except this time, they’re collaborating with Al Doyle and Joe Goddard from the aforementioned Hot Chip. It’s typically infectious fare, and the satirical video on consumerism is directed by the band’s Jonny Sanders.
The new EP, Sweet Morning, is released on Nov 5th via Moshi Moshi.
