Bio

2009 is already looking to be a momentous year for Telegraphs, with tours with The Datsuns and The Dykeenies already behind them, they have just been chosen as main support for the Innerpartysystem UK tour in April / May, followed by the In Case Of Fire headline tour in late May.
Telegraphs are a band full of drama and adventure; breaking into a derelict Victorian mental asylum for a photo shoot, they scaled security fences and scuttled through the gloomy sprawling wards full of abandoned padded cells. Haunting reminders of it’s disturbed past providing a perfect link to their upcoming debut album 'We Were Ghosts.'
’We Were Ghosts’ is released on May 25th, 2009 on Small Town Records. The band’s debut was recorded on a mountain side in Snowdonia with acclaimed producer Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Idlewild, Kylie Minogue). Telegraphs are led by frontman Darcy Harrison and fiery redhead bassist Hattie Williams, their smoldering lyrical content and delivery is made all the more poignant and passionate by the fact that these songs were written and recorded in the dwindling days of their relationship. Still the closest of friends Darcy and Hattie only realised once it was complete that this album reflects perfectly the rollercoaster of emotion they were riding, and they have subconsciously documented the dramatic changes to their lives. New beginnings too for the band as together with primo guitarist Darren LeWarne and willowy drummer Sam Bacon, they are joined by new guitarist Aung Yay, whose name is pronounced ‘Gary’ due to the fact that as a child of Burmese descent growing up in the UK, when given the choice to pick a western name for himself he took it from his favorite movie character in the eighties classic Weird Science (so he could have just as easily been called Wyatt or Chet!).
Having seen early tracks by the band supported by Huw Stephens on Radio 1 and John Kennedy on XFM and receiving early doors coverage from the likes of The Fly, Kerrang! and Rock Sound, it is easy to see why many are tipping 2009 to be the year that Telegraphs’ success in Brighton spreads throughout the UK and beyond. Their ocean-sized dramas played out across the nocturnal city streets, the melancholy darkness of a Bladerunner inspired backdrop lit up by incandescent choruses, explosive drum fills and punctuated by huge barbed guitar hooks.
