Tokyo Police Club's optimistic pop. - Oh My Rockness

Band We Like
June 21, 2006
Toronto's Tokyo Police Club play optimistic and twitchy pop with a beat. They say that if you were to throw Bowie, Joy Division, The Arcade Fire into a blender, you'd find the inspiration for their sound. One thing is for sure, these four guys definitely love pronounced bass lines, chants, hand-claps and rapid drums. If that's not optimism, I don't know what is.

They've been building hefty buzz as they tour Canada (btw, did you know there is a venue in London, Ontario called The Alex P. Keaton... how much does that rule?) and the States, and will continue their quest to take over the world, one addictive riff at a time. Also, be sure to check out their debut album!

Tokyo Police Club play Mercury Lounge, Tuesday, June 27th, and The Syrup Room, Thursday, June 29th.
