After wowing crowds at Gorilla in spring 2016, Teleman are heading back to the Manchester venue to supply another dose of indie rock melodies. The London quartet’s debut via Moshi Moshi, Breakfast, buoyed them into prime festival and tour support slots, such as warming up for Metronomy at Albert Hall in 2014, but it was Brilliant Sanity, 2016’s followup on the same label, that has really made their name. Borrowing aspects of Krautrock and college rock, while splicing glimmers of Franz Ferdinand with an infectiously cheery chirpiness, the album’s release prompted a month-long headlining tour of UK and Europe alongside kudos from music critics.
