Teleman are an English indie pop band formed in London in 2012. The group consists of Thomas Sanders (vocals, guitar), Jonny Sanders (synths), Pete Cattermoul (bass) and Hiro Amamiya (drums). Cattermoul and the Sanders brothers were previously members of the indie pop band Pete and the Pirates. Thomas Sanders has also recorded music under his solo name Tap Tap.
Following the disbanding of Pete and the Pirates in 2012, three of the band's members started writing and recording new music under the name Teleman, adding drummer Hiro Amamiya. The band's name derived from seeing an album in a charity shop by composer Georg Philipp Telemann. Teleman's debut single Cristina was released in early 2013, with the debut album Breakfast coming in mid-2014, produced by Bernard Butler. Further singles from the album included "23 Floors Up", "Skeleton Dance" and "Mainline". "Lady Low" from the record featured Stephen Black on saxophone. The band toured supporting Suede, Metronomy, Maximo Park, Kaiser Chiefs and Franz Ferdinand, and appeared in festivals including Glastonbury, Green Man, End of the Road and Les Inrocks.
In 2014 and 2015 Teleman toured extensively in Europe and in the US while preparing to record their second album. They released the stand-alone single "Strange Combinations" in March 2015. In 2016, they opened for Belle and Sebastian on tour. Teleman's second album, Brilliant Sanity, was released in April 2016. Two singles were released from it previously: "Fall in Time" and "Düsseldorf".
The band have been championed by radio presenter Marc Riley, who booked them for a session on his BBC 6 Music show as early as January 2013. Two further sessions were recorded in 2014. They also appeared on his BBC Online music show "All Shook Up" in 2015 and played four songs live in session on Riley's show on April 6, 2016. The group played two tracks live on Lauren Laverne's BBC 6 Music show 6 Music Live Room on 6 September 2018 promoting the release of their new album.
