After seeing queues down the street at The Great Escape & Dot to Dot, Teleman reveal the video for their second single Steam Train Girl.
Available from June 1 on 7” vinyl through their own imprint Encona Records, the London quartet present their second slice of Bernard Butler-produced melody. Fitting, since the band have also recently been asked to support Suede on their European tour.
Before then, Teleman will play a sold out show at London’s Lexington next week and, with this new single, prove themselves one to catch amongst their many festival shows this summer.
Steam Train Girl kicks off with pulsating guitars before the rest of band gradually join in, layering psychedelic-tinged synths over Thomas’ striking vocals and rhythmic drums. Steam Train Girl is backed by B-side Please Kill It, a delicate track that reinforces Teleman’s skill for crafting exquisite and immediate pop songs.
Their debut single, Cristina, was released earlier this year and achieved radio plays from Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Jen Long and Phil Taggart, B-listed at 6Music and Playlisted at Xfm.
