Teleman head to Birmingham c/o those clever musos at Birmingham promoters to serve up a dose of their neat, explosive indie rock melodies. The London quartet’s debut via Moshi Moshi, Breakfast, buoyed them into prime festival and tour support slots, such as warming up for Metronomy at Albert Hall in 2014, but it was Brilliant Sanity, 2016’s followup on the same label, that has really made their name. Borrowing aspects of Krautrock and college rock, while splicing glimmers of Franz Ferdinand with an infectiously cheery chirpiness, the album’s release prompted a month-long headlining tour of the UK and Europe alongside kudos from music critics.
