“terrific motorik indie” The Guardian
“electro-pop lift-off: circular grooves, dancefloor bounce, reflective, John Foxx-ish synth drift and even Buggles-ish new wave” MOJO
“Teleman stand alongside Metronomy, Field Music and Dutch Uncles in the smart pop ranks, yet sound unlike any of them.” - Uncut
With classic Teleman style, Good Time / Hard Time is their most dancefloor-friendly record to date. Following the departure of the band’s long-time keyboard player Jonny Sanders to focus on his film and design work, Peter Cattermoul now leads on keyboard duties and Hiro Amamiya slides seamlessly between drum machine, live drums and even the odd keyboard solo as it captures the bounce of choice cuts from their own DJ sets such as Metronomy or the classic disco of Boney M, Giorgio Moroder, early house music and 80s vibes - all the while doused in their trademark blend of uplifting melancholy.
“You’ve got to experience the hard times to appreciate the good times in life,” Tom explains. “Most of the songs are about universal things everyone can relate to, the small and simple details about difficult connections and overcoming them.”
