Tokyo Police Club - My House

1. Who are they? 

Tokyo Police Club are an indie rock band from Newmarket, Canada. Kicking it since 2005 the lads have four albums in the bag. My House (Sept'16) is the lead single released from the new E.P. Mellon Collon And The Infinite Radness, Part 2 (Sept'16). 

2. What have they got to offer? 

My House is a languid little banger that stomps along in the verses. The rest is scattergun.

3. Who do Tokyo Police Club sound like?

Weezer - lite. The Arkells. 

4. What have the press said about My House? 

“Stout riffs stomp and chug along before giving way to a sweeping, panoramic chorus” – Consequence Of Sound. 

“Big on pop-crunch guitar” – Exclaim.

“A crunchy, catchy pop-rock song” – Sugar Creek Sound. 

5. Which bands have influenced Tokyo Party Club?

Some of the main influences are Pulp, The Strokes, Weezer, Bloc Party and HAIM.

6. Why should I give My House a fair crack of the whip?

The stomp of the riff in the verse has echoes of Weezer's stone cold legendary tune El Scorcho.

7. Do Tokyo Police Club have any other bangers?

Hot Tonight is an light little feel-good indie belter. Your English Is Good and Toy Guns make up the tail end of a tasty threesome.

8. Any more words petal?

My House was written and recorded with Rostam Batmanglij, the dude who used to be in Vampire Weekend. 

“Whatever you do, I guess it doesn’t matter if no one else knows it?”

Bloc Party are a popular English indie rock band from London, England. Getting the party rocking since 1999 they have released five fantastic albums and had sold over three million albums by 2012. The first three Bloc Party albums all charted in the top five in the U.K. album charts. The Love Within (Oct'15) was the lead single for the album Hymns (Feb'16) and is a tune NME described as “narcotic dancefloor euphoria” and Pitchfork as “an indie disco-pop hybrid.”

“The love within is moving upwards,

So don’t you want to get high?”
