Track Of The Day: Teleman - '23 Floors Up'

As their press release states: "Teleman – 'Tele', from the Greek for 'distance' – are a band you're invited to, not inundated with." I saw these guys supporting Suede last year, and thier music proved to be a slow-burning delight. It's charming, melodic alternative pop with a slight Krautrock twist in places, and comes fronted by the voice of Thomas Sanders, who you may or may not remember from Pete And The Pirates. Due for release on June 2 via Moshi Moshi records, their debut album is called 'Breakfast' and was produced by the legendary Bernard Butler. Before that hits the music world, you can enjoy a taste of what's to come, with this superbly hazy, emotionally robust single. The video was directed by band member Johnny Saunders, who has taken on the visual aspect of the band’s work, including the album artwork. A list of UK tour dates can be seen below.
