Sadly it would seem Pete & The Pirates are no more, although there has been no confirmation from the band but it looks pretty ominous.
Out of the ashes however comes Teleman, made up of former pirate trio; Thomas Sanders, Jonny Sanders and Pete Cattermoul. ‘Cristina’ is the curtain raiser of this new project, a simplistic slice of blissful pop with Thomas Sanders distinctive and bittersweet vocals at the centre, drawing you in bit by bit. A wonderful hazy introduction to this new venture.
‘Cristina’ will be accompanied by ‘In Your Fur’ for Teleman’s debut release, which will be part of the new Moshi Moshi Singles Club; it comes out on January 14th.
