England’s Teleman are releasing their third album, Family of Aliens, on September 7 via Moshi Moshi. Now they have shared the album’s third single, “Song For a Seagull,” via a video for the song. The video features the band live streaming as the travel around London in the back of a taxicab. Their fans comment with the lyrics in sync with the song. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates. Also below are the album’s first two singles, “Submarine Life” and “Cactus.”

In a press release, Teleman’s lead vocalist/guitarist Tom Sanders says “Song For a Seagull” “explores the idea of doing everything you can to escape on your own to somewhere far away, somewhere better, but then having no one to experience it with. The person is present but absent, they are miles away. They don’t belong in the world.”

Family of Aliens is the follow-up to 2016’s Brilliant Sanity and 2013’s Bernard Butler-produced Breakfast.

Sanders also had this to say about Family of Aliens in the press release: “We want to keep evolving and keep discovering. This band is one long journey for us, and we never want to stop developing and finding new ways of creating music. I’m always wanting to better what we’ve done before. To go deeper, to find something more beautiful, more catchy, more challenging, more interesting…just more.”
