TELEGRAPHS We Were Ghosts (2009)

Brighton based Telegraphs explode onto the scene with their debut album We Were Ghosts.

Recorded in Snowdonia with acclaimed producer Dave Eringa (Manics, Idlewild, Kylie) in the dying days of the relationship of frontman Darcy Harrison and fiery redhead bassist Hattie Williams, it's a combination that doesn't just smoulder - it burns like a steel foundry.

With the angular rhythms favoured by the likes of Biffy Clyro, the 5 piece (Darren LeWarne - guitars, Sam Bacon - drums, and Aung 'Gary' Yay - complete the line up), the band kick up a storm - power chords, staccato rhythms, neat guitar work, and anthemic hooks in abundance.

Telegraphs are widely tipped to be one of the 'bands to watch' in 2009 by the likes of Radio 1, Kerrang! And Rock Sound. And for once I would have to concur, there's an intensity and passion here that doesn't drop from the first groove to the last.

Some may say Telegraphs emulate Biffy Clyro a little too closely for comfort, but in truth there's enough originality here for fans of the genre to find favour with both bands. And as for Biffy, watch out - Telegraphs are after your crown. An intense and impressive debut.
