Album number two from Teleman delivers a few subtle but significant changes; essentially though, it's business as usual for the wonky-pop quartet.

Happily, the quirky musical moments that characterised the London band's 2014 debut Breakfast are sprinkled over Brilliant Sanity, resulting in 11 pleasingly playful songs.

Teleman's clean synth, bass and drum arrangements are ramped up this time around - perhaps the touch of producer Dan Carey (Bat For Lashes, Nick Mulvey, Django Django) - but all in all, they still sit politely with the sanguine vocals and guitar of Johnny Sanders.

Indeed, on the chattering album opener 'Dusseldorf' (complete with female monologue in German), standout title track 'Brilliant Sanity' and even on the heavier 'Tangerine', the singer navigates his way through the band's gentler and rockier sounds with charm.

The 'Christina' stars' disarming sweetness can occasionally border on the twee, particularly on the ditty 'Canvas Shoes' and the mildly saccharine 'Melrose', though in the context of Teleman's friendly and inoffensive new wave and indie-pop here, really, it fits just fine.

A lovely listen.
