Time for T return with their laidback sunkissed anthem Calling Back, which is set to go live on all platforms tomorrow. We’re thrilled to premiere this one:
The band explain: “This video was a very natural and pure process. We decided, one afternoon over a few beers in the Lisbon sun, that we should make a “dance music video” to which Jens Tiemann said he could do it and he knew exactly the right person to perform in it – Lisa Bless. There and then we decided to go hunting for nice spots to film Lisa doing her thing in the oldest neighbourhoods of Lisbon (Alfama and Mouraria). Nothing was planned and so we just let Lisa do her thing, from eating her own hair to doing some amazing moves. I think Lisa’s attitude, alongside the colours and light, works the tropical beat and sunny guitars on the track perfectly whilst the subtitled lyrics keep the narrative flowing.“
Described as somewhere between Bob Dylan and Fela Kuti, Time for T has always been difficult to categorise. This may be due to the eclectic backgrounds of the band (England, Portugal, Brazil and Spain) and the nomadic nature of its members. The project was started by Tiago Saga in Brighton back in 2013 and is now based in Lisbon.
2019 brings with it Galavanting, a new album that has been worked on remotely between Lisbon and Madrid, of which the namesake was inspired by the nomadic and galavanting manner in which it was recorded. The opening salvo, Eyes, was released in May and signalled a fresh sound for the group, followed by the summer single Screenshot that confirmed the quality of their determination towards an ever-evolving sound.
Having released three EP’s and debut LP Hoping Something Anything (2017), the band have picked up a UK Spotify Viral Charts number 1 single, radio play on BBC Radio 1 & 6 (UK), Antena 3 (Portugal) and Deutschland Radio Kultur (Germany) along the way as well as playing at notable festivals such as Green Man, NOS Alive, Super Bock Super Rock and Secret Garden Party, as well as extensive touring around Europe and some shows in the USA, Mexico and Lebanon.
