All eleven songs were recorded at home or at their friends’ Zen Arcade studio in Catania. In these familiar surroundings they were able to experiment at leisure, try out new things and, if needs be, discard them again without wasting any thoughts on costly studio time. Whenever they felt ready to lay down a track, they simply pushed the Record button. This spontaneous and informal recording process, continuing on and off for nearly a year, allowed Tellaro to capture different moods and those special moments that keep cropping up during their sessions. By adding a computer to their repertory, Tellaro introduced entirely new facets to their sound.
Painstaking electronic arrangements, as those featured on the opener “1985”, or angular electro pop songs like “Terracotta” might have sat awkwardly between the tracks of their self-titled debut EP, yet on “Setback On The Right Track” they blend in seamlessly with sparsely instrumented acoustic numbers or songs recorded with a traditional classic rock line-up. All eleven tracks are pervaded by Tellaro’s extraordinary talent for catchy yet surprising melodies and harmonies. Oct 2009 Tellaro are now recording their third album.
