Ahead of their performance at Green Man Festival this weekend, Teleman tell us who they’re most looking forward to seeing…

Moshi Moshi’s Teleman are preparing for the release of their third album next month. Family of Aliens will follow 2016’s Brilliant Sanity and sees the London five piece expand on their expertly crafted marriage of vibrant production and catchy melodies with a pop sensibility. This summer has seen Teleman playing the likes of The Great Escape and Tramlines Festival, and they’ll finish their festival season with Green Man before embarking on a venue tour of the U.K. in celebration of the release of their new record.

The third single from Family Aliens, the charming ‘Song For A Seagull’, features an equally beguiling DIY visual which premiered on the band’s Instagram. Teleman take a taxi across London whilst livestreaming on their story, allowing their fans to interact as the video went live for the first time. ‘Song For A Seagull’, with its pop melodies and vibrant synths, marks the fresh sonic of the new record, and the track is an ode to an overwhelming need to escape. Check the visual below…


Family of Aliens is out via Moshi Moshi on 7th September.

BAS JAN

– recommended by Pete –

These lot have amazingly good, funny and interesting songs. There’s one called Sat Nav – Tom Tom mix and another called King of Holloway Road. Led by the fantastic Serafina Steer, what more do you need to know?

 

BAXTER DURY

– recommended by Jonny –

Simple, pretty melodies with synths, drums, bass, and guitar. Something like us really except we don’t have a breathy female vocalist to duet with. We always admired his production and it was in fact an influence for how we wanted to sound in the early days.

 

THE BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE

– recommended by Jonny –

With a 60s lofi sound and production, these guys are all about the songs; long meandering and psychedelic serving as a fuck you to pretty much anything ever. We first saw them many, many years ago at a festival right here in the Brecon Beacons!

 

FLOATING POINTS

– recommended by Tom –

An act I’ve been wanting to see live for a very long time. I’m a big fan of these often complex and intriguing arrangements and I think that making dance music with a mix of live drums, modular synths, strings and brass is a really hard thing to pull off and an amazing experience to watch live…. I’m sure it won’t disappoint!

 

SNAPPED ANKLES

– recommended by Hiro –

Their live set is simply really good, they dress up like a shaman and it’s fun to watch too. Fuzzy synths and motorik beat keep you dancing all night. Playing after dark at The Walled Garden is honestly perfect timing for them. Be sure to check them out!

 

Green Man takes places this weekend (16th to 19th August) in the Brecon Beacons.
