Teleman - (Official Video) for Düsseldorf will Transport You To Interesting Places

Last year the four members of the band Teleman spent six months in a rehearsal space in Homerton, East London striving to write "immaculate pop songs" all contributing unique styles and writing chord structures and lyrics on dry erase white boards. After it was all said and done they emerged with 50 new songs that they coalesced to form their upcoming sophomore album "Brilliant Sanity" due to drop on April 8th via Moshi Moshi.

The video for

Düsseldorf

 which feels like a moving Polaroid is quirky and cool and the song itself is indeed an immaculately crafted pop song. I fell in love with the sound instantly.

The tone of the keyboard and attacking guitar lines along and a melodramatic feel to the melodies pull you into this kind of cinematic place. The pop has a proto punkish edge mixed into it. It is as if you took elements of bands like Kraftwerk, Franz Ferdinand, The Buggles, Erasure, Wide Streets, early Elvis Costello and even Abba and put them in a blender. Very cool sound that will make your mind travel to interesting places.
