With tours with The Datsuns, The Dykeenies, Innerpartysystem and In Case Of Fire behind them and support slots with Eagles Of Death Metal still to come - as well as numerous festival appearances - 2009 is already shaping up to be a momentous year for Brighton's Telegraphs.

They're led by frontman Darcy Harrison and fiery redhead bassist, Hattie Williams. They used to be a couple, and many of the band's songs were penned in the final days of the duo's strained relationship. They remain the best of friends now, but you can sense the history in their smoldering lyrical content and passionate delivery.

The band's incandescent choruses, explosive drum fills and huge barbed guitar hooks attracted the attention of Huw Stephens on Radio 1 and John Kennedy on XFM early on, and their debut long-player, We Were Ghosts, was described by RockSound magazine as "a beast furiously bashing around in a cage".
