While the documentation and critique of corporate life isn’t exactly new (much of 90s brit-pop was rooted in commentary of the same nature, after all) there is something fresh and modern about TEDDY‘s track “Happy Tim”.
Is is the way tunes are introduced and brought back, Chekhov’s gun style, for a wonderfully catchy apex? The layering of synth, speedy vocal assessments, and the croon of “This is happiness, happiness, happiness!”, or perhaps the Asian-inspired flute-like underlay? Listen and find what catches your attention, because I’m sure something will.
The name TEDDY is a portmanteau of friends Tom Falle and Eddy Bailhache, who — after some time in London — now live and create their art on a small island off the coast of France. They’ve also been joined by a third member, Alex Glover. Like what you hear? Follow the band for more fantastic synthpop on their website and Facebook page.
