Teleman today unveiled the new video for their hook-laden, joyful stomper, “Glory Hallelujah,” off their sophomore LP Brilliant Sanity, released on April 8th via Moshi Moshi. The video was created by the band’s Jonny Sanders on their recent European tour. “Glory Hallelujah” will be released as a single on June 17th, 2016.
Sanders says of the clip, “A couple of weeks before leaving for tour we realized we needed to make a video so we took a camera with us and made one while we were away. Trying to avoid the usual ‘tour diary’ clichés, we filmed something that looked nice and captured a feel of some of the places we went to. However the most used shot was from a dug up car park somewhere off the motorway in northern France when we broke down: Tom’s glasses with me and Pete dancing in the reflection.”
Following a recent headline tour which culminated in a triumphant hometown performance at KOKO in London, the band have announced new tour dates, including their biggest UK headline show to date – at The Forum on 1st November. Tickets are available HERE.

Brilliant Sanity, the follow-up to Teleman’s acclaimed debut, Breakfast, was written in their Homerton studio and recorded in South London with producer, Dan Carey (Bat for Lashes, Kate Tempest, Nick Mulvey).
The art of songwriting has been the driving force behind Brilliant Sanity, the process of crafting of the immaculate pop song, the dogged pursuit of the perfect hook. The result is an album that appears fastidiously and impeccably made, but also charged with joy.
Now a four-piece made up of singer and guitarist Tommy Sanders, his brother Jonny on synths, Pete Cattermoul on bass and Hiro Amamiya on drums, the process of touring has honed Teleman into a spectacular live act and brought about the decision to record the new record in a very live and spontaneous way.
