Having recently announced their debut album ‘Breakfast’ Teleman share their new single ’23 Floors Up’. To be released on the same date as the album via Moshi Moshi Records.
A sweeping slice of psych pop, ’23 Floors Up’ is a song of high-rise hotel passions and paranoia. The video is directed by band member Jonny Sanders, who after making the “anti-video” of coloured dots for debut single ‘Cristina’, has been handling the visual aspect of Teleman including the industrial archival footage video for ‘Steam Train Girl’ and the album artwork.
‘‘It’s like visions from a dream in places,” singer Thomas Sanders explains. ”I love really strong images. You hear a lyric and as soon as the lyric is said you see it in front of you. A lot of the lyrics are based on personal experience, but a lot of it, is story-telling and a lot of it is fiction,” adds Thomas. “I’m purposefully ambiguous. I love listening to other people’s interpretations’. If that’s what they’ve understood then that is a meaning in itself. In the same way as if you look at a painting and you see something, you’ve definitely seen it, it’s definitely real for you.”
