TUNE Telegram - Regatta
Telegram release new single ‘Regatta’ on 22nd April on their own GramGram label. It’s the second single taken from their eagerly anticipated debut album ‘Operator’ (5th Feb) and also features B-side ‘Jigsaw’.
Formed just over two years ago, the Telegram line up of Matt Saunders (vocals/guitar), Oli Paget-Moon (bass) and Jordan Cook (drums) have recently recruited new guitarist Pip Staken into the fold. ‘Operator’ was recorded in London with Rory Attwell and features 12 tracks including the long deleted 7” debut and fan favourite ‘Follow’. ‘Operator’ was funded by the Momentum Fund and a successful Pledge campaign.
Telegram play SXSW, Javelina (16th March) and Pianos, New York (24th March) before heading out on a run of European dates and then head back to the UK to play The Great Escape festival in May.
“Operator is a very strong and interesting record, mixing glittery platforms with darker horizons.” 7.5/10 The 405
“Other rock debuts this year may well prove more immediately accessible, but few are like to be as thrillingly original.” DIY
