‘Trees Grow High’ taken from the new album ‘Good Time / Hard Time’ due 7th of April
A tree may lose its leaves but will continue to grow. For Teleman, the band’s fourth album Good Time / Hard Time is their first as a trio and sees them evolve as a force of nature as they navigate new beginnings despite a wealth of experience behind them. Music and lyrical stream of consciousness entwined, the album makes sense of a world in chaos and its words of wisdom are a vital reminder that even when things seem heavy, life is precious.
“Nature can teach us so much about patience and how you can’t control everything – you just have to let things happen as it intends… it’s great therapy,” tells the band’s singer and guitarist, Thomas Sanders whose garden-dwelling and park strolls to the studio have inevitably wormed their way into Teleman’s songwriting. “I was reading about forests and how trees help each other, they don’t survive on their own, they grow together… as a band we’ve now grown into each other as a triangle shape after having been a square for so long.” New track ‘Trees Grow High’ furthers this notion, commenting on how our childhood experiences can shape our adult life.
Teleman take their idiosyncratic sound around the UK next year in support of the new album ‘Good Time / Hard Time’.
