Teleman: Sci-fi disco for the charts

J.N. December 4, 2018

They’re hardly new on the scene but London four-piece Teleman, formed out of the ashes of indie band Pete and the Pirates, deserve more attention than they’ve got so far. The band’s name derived from seeing an album in a charity shop by composer Georg Philipp Telemann and have always stood apart because of their constant desire to have fun.

This year they returned with a third album, “Family of Aliens”, with driving bass lines, electropop and sci-fi disco and it’s the band’s first out-and-out dance record, thus earning them a place “In the Spotlight”.

About The Author

Music researcher with an unhealthy passion for music and music festivals. Former studio owner, semi-functional drummer and with a fairly good collection of old analogue synthesizers from the 70's. Indie rock, post rock, electronic/industrial and drum & bass (kind of a mix, yeah?) are usual stuff in my playlists but everything that sounds good will fit in.
