Breakfast finds London four-piece Teleman offering up an irresistible twelve tracker for their debut.
The Bernard-Butler-produced record from the former Pete and the Pirates boys, who play the Best Fit stage at this year’s Field Day in London on 7 June, sees them holding their heads up high in a year of strong British-made music.
‘‘A lot of the lyrics are based on personal experience, but a lot of it, is story-telling and a lot of it is fiction,’’ says singer Thomas Sanders. “I really like double-meaning or other interpretations. I’m purposefully ambiguous. Sometimes you write a song and you don’t think about the lyrics again for years until someone asks you what it’s about. I love listening to other people’s interpretations’. If that’s what they’ve understood then that is a meaning in itself. In the same way as if you look at a painting and you see something, you’ve definitely seen it, it’s definitely real for you.”
