Teller is a five-piece band from Gothenburg, Sweden. Gustav K. used to play the drums in the Swedish indie band The Gentle Act Incident and pop rock band The Shiloh, Emanuel O. normally plays the bass guitar in the Swedish post-rock act EF and Erik B. used to hit the keys of The Shiloh. But all in all, Teller is a band of five friends who needed an outlet to create music and to socialize.

Each member is a keystone for a certain type of element: wavy ambient tones, strong melodies, and dynamic passages. Some parts of their songs have existed as ideas as far back as 15 years. For them, it has been a journey that was necessary before they could complete their ideas into songs. 

To mention some of their influences: Caspian, Sigur Rós, and Kashmir.

Strive Recess Echo is the result of hard work and devotion from all five members, and not only have they written the music but they also created the artwork, recorded it and self financed it without any label involved. 

All additional musicians that appear on the album, or people that were a part of the process, are all included in a network of friends inside of the Gothenburg music scene.
