Playing catch-up tonight with some of the earlier festivals this Spring/Summer with a set by Telegram at the 2014 Best Kept Secret Festival.
According to UK music paper NME, Telegram are one of the essential and unmissable bands of 2014. I would go along with them on that.
According to The Guardian newspaper, Telegram are described as “This Anglo-Welsh band’s pace is motorik, their beat kraut, and their tone psychedelic, with a dash of glam”. I would go along with them on that one too.
Telegram have been getting a lot of positive press the past two years, and this all-too-short set from them at this year’s Best Kept Secret Festival in The Netherlands offers a good reason what all the fuss is about.
In the mold of a lot of New-Psych that’s been making the rounds of late, Telegram offer something a bit different -maybe it’s the “dash of glam” as The Guardian described it. Whatever if it, they are definitely a band to keep an eye out for, and catch them if/when they show up near you.
As always, recorded by the ever-present/ever-trusty VPRO in The Netherlands, Telegram were an unexpected hit at the Festival this year. Harbinger of more to come.
