Because they bring back and update the grand tradition of the Lee Hazlewood/Nancy Sinatra duet, seasoning it with a syncopated and direct style of vocal interpretation;

Because the musical past of each member and the frugality of means and arrangements are the recognizable, yet always fresh ingredients of solidly built songs, undressed of musical will-o’-the-wisp gimmicks;

Because they refer to Virginia Woolf and Hemingway without compromising a slight swing of the hips or the bass’s dynamic pulse;

Because their repertoire includes a beautiful version of a wonderful Arthur Russell song;

Because they baptize the band with a resonant, mnemonic name that eases one’s conception of a symbolic context (narrative and contemporary) for the project’s sound and its songs;

Because they wrap up the musical object in a graphical work that is simultaneously allusive and elusive;

Because they do all this in a record set on an afternoon that one imagines to be relaxed, occupying 6 m2 in a 20 m2 room.

Ladies and gentlemen, let us salute the debut of Dear Telephone,

And the birth of “Birth of a Robot”.
