Teleman - 'Tele', from the Greek for 'distance' - are a band you're invited to, not inundated with. Their sparse, welcoming minimalist synth tones, gentle motorik beats and balloon-light melodies seeped quietly onto the radio last year and hypnotized the alt-pop nation. With two stunning singles under their belt, London's Teleman release their debut album 'Breakfast'. Produced by Bernard Butler, 'Breakfast' is released through Moshi Moshi Records. From the pared-back 'Cristina', to the modernist proposition of 'Steam Train Girl' (both former singles which clocked up plays across Radio 1 and earned themselves Playlist spots on BBC 6Music and Xfm) and new track 'Lady Low', variety abounds on 'Breakfast'. Elsewhere is the sweeping psych pop of '23 Floors Up' - a song of high-rise hotel passions and paranoia - and the startling 'Mainline', a warped, electro-fied chain-gang blues full of visions of burning seas, secret gangs and luminous lovers. LP with CD Version.
