Telstar are a four piece alternative rock band from Watford, Hertfordshire. They formed in early 2011 and went on to win the MMG three counties battle of the bands later that year and now play various venues around the UK but are based primarily in London. Their sound mixes interesting chord progressions, with gritty poetic lyrics and tempo changes that take you from swaying from side to side, to tapping your foot and banging your head.
