Teleman have always stood apart because of their constant desire to have fun. Signed to Moshi Moshi in 2012, the four-piece return with a third album that continues this fine tradition.
While they’ve always dabbled, ‘Family of Aliens’ is the band’s first out-and-out dance record. ‘Cactus’ recalls Hot Chip at their pomp, its driving bass line underlying the track – while there are some exquisite psychedelic touches that feel like they’re straight out of a sci-fi disco. ‘Submarine Life’, meanwhile, reveals them at their weird and wonderful best, and could reasonably pass as a track left off ‘Random Access Memories’. Tonight in concert at Razzmatazz.
